CMS Call for Comments: IMPACT Act Quality Measures (Health Info & Preferences at Transition)

Through May 3, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) will accept public comments to inform the development of quality measures for the Improving Medicare Post-Acute Care Transformation Act of 2014 (IMPACT Act). Specifically, the transfer of health information and care preferences at transitions for post-acute care (PAC) settings.

The IMPACT Act mandates the accurate communication about the existence of and the transfer of information and preferences of an individual to the individual, family caregiver, and providers of services. Within this domain, CMS seeks input on two potential measures: "Medication Profile Transferred to Provider" and "Medication Profile Transfer to Patient."

Visit the official CMS public comment page<> for more information. All comments should be submitted via email to<>.
