HART User Tool Training Modules Available

The Hospice Abstraction Reporting Tool,  or HART, is a free JAVA-based application provided by CMS and made available for Hospice providers for the entry and validation of HIS Records prior to submission to the QIES ASAP system.

There are 4 WebEx training modules available that will demonstrate the use of the HART tool. These will be available on the website beginning the week of May 5, 2014.

The modules are:

  • HART Login - This WebEx will review the beginning steps to login to the HART tool. This includes logging in, creating a User and creating a Facility.
  • HART Patient and HIS Record - This WebEx will review how to create a patient and a HIS Record within the HART tool.
  • HART Import Export - This WebEx will review how to import and export HIS Records in the HART tool.
  • HART Reports - This WebEx will review how to run the available reports within the HART tool.

In addition to these videos, a Demonstration copy of the HART tool will be available to download from the website in mid-May. This demo version will allow you to enter in test Facility, User, Patient, and HIS Records so that you can get comfortable with the tool prior to July 1st. Since it is a demonstration version, it will not allow imports or exports and any information that is entered will be considered “test” data.
