Abt Associates, Inc. and Joan Teno, MD (OHSU) under contract with Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) are developing a hospice assessment instrument for use in the CMS Hospice Quality Reporting Program (HQRP). In support of this work the Abt team will be joining some key hospice-related conferences and industry meetings this year to conduct a series of Listening Sessions for providers and industry to share their thoughts on what's most important to consider when developing an assessment instrument to be used in the CMS' Hospice Quality Reporting Program. The Goal of the Listening Sessions is not only to hear what is important to consider when developing an assessment instrument, but also to listen to concerns from the field of providers, experts, and industry. These sessions also help with furthering stakeholder rapport and understanding of this new tool concept which increases their support as we develop and refine it.
