Abt Associates, under contract with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), is conducting a Technical Expert Panel as part of the measure development of Potentially Preventable Hospitalization Measures for Home Health Agencies (HHAs). TEP nominations are now being accepted. The nomination period closes February 22, 2018.
The TEP objectives are to develop an approach for defining potentially preventable hospitalizations (PPH) for the home health setting and to develop potentially preventable hospitalization measures for the home health setting, including standardized items and specifications such as inclusion/exclusion criteria, and patient and facility characteristics--factors associated with outcome measures (risk adjusters).
Additonal information on this TEP including the nomination requirements can be found on the CMS Technical Expert Panels webpage.
