As of January 17, 2013, the new hospitalization measure based on CMS claims-based data has been posted on Home Health Compare. The home health agencies’ national mean for the claims-based data is 17% as opposed to 26% for the OASIS ACH rate.
This new measure is based on the entire sixty-day episode of care and only includes Medicare-fee-for-service patients.
