Available in iQIES: Expanded HHVBP Model Pre-Implementation Performance Reports


As the expanded Home Health Value-Based Purchasing (HHVBP) Model prepares to start the first performance year on January 1, 2023, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) issued the November 2022 Pre-Implementation Performance Report (PIPR) to all active home health agencies.

The PIPRs provide home health agencies with data on their quality measure performance used in the expanded HHVBP Model, with comparison to home health agencies nationally within peer cohorts. Additionally, the Calendar Year (CY) 2023 Home Health Prospective Payment System (PPS) final rule amended the model baseline year from CY 2019 to CY 2022 starting in the CY 2023 performance year to enable CMS to measure competing home health agencies' performance on benchmarks and achievement thresholds that are more current. The PIPRs provide a preview of where your agency’s performance falls in regard to the new baseline year, in advance of the release of the first Interim Performance Reports (IPRs) in July 2023.

The November 2022 PIPR is available to download from the Internet Quality Improvement Evaluation System (iQIES). Instructions on how to access the PIPRs are available on the Expanded HHVBP Model webpage, under "Model Reports".

To assist home health agencies in understanding the purpose, content, and use of the PIPRs, the HHVBP Technical Assistance team created an on-demand video and downloadable resource, “Introduction to the Pre-Implementation Performance Report”, available on the Expanded HHVBP Model webpage under "Model Reports". The video is also available on the Expanded HHVBP Model YouTube channel.

There will also be a live-streaming event introducing the PIPRs at 11:00 AM ET on November 17, 2022. Attendees will have the opportunity to submit questions during the webinar. Click here to register for the event.

New Resource Available – Quality Improvement Self-Assessment for Your Agency

The HHVBP Technical Assistance team is pleased to announce the availability of a new organizational self-assessment resource, "Quality Measure Category-Focused Performance Improvement". This resource provides a brief, self-guided, performance improvement exercise designed for home health agency teams, based on a structured review of expanded HHVBP Model performance data by measure category. Included in this resource is a template that will help teams create data visualizations that will highlight patterns in measuring performance by category. Teams can use results for planning performance improvement activities.

This resource is available on the Expanded HHVBP Model webpage under the “Quality Improvement” section.
