The Long-Term Care Hospital (LTCH) Provider Preview Reports have been updated and are now available. These reports contain provider performance scores for quality measures, which will be published on Care Compare and Provider Data Catalog (PDC) during the December 2022 Refresh.

The data contained within the Preview Reports are based on quality assessment data submitted by LTCHs from Quarter 2, 2021 through Quarter 1, 2022, and for the LTCH Change in Mobility measure, Quarter 4, 2019 and Quarter 3, 2020 through Quarter 1, 2022. Additionally, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) measures reflect data from Quarter 1, 2021 through Quarter 4, 2021 for the Clostridium Difficile Infection (CDI), Catheter-Associated Urinary Tract Infections (CAUTI), and Central Line-Associated Bloodstream Infections (CLABSI) measures, Quarter 4, 2020 through Quarter 1, 2021 for the Healthcare Personnel (HCP) Influenza measure, and Quarter 1, 2022 for the COVID-19 Vaccination Coverage among Healthcare Personnel (HCP) measure. The data for the claims-based measures will display data from Quarter 3, 2019 through Quarter 4, 2019 and Quarter 3, 2020 through Quarter 2, 2021 for this Refresh.

Providers have until October 17, 2022 to review their performance data. Corrections to the underlying data will not be permitted during this time. However, providers can request Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) review of their data during the preview period if they believe the quality measure scores that are displayed within their Preview Reports are inaccurate.
