The fifth round of hospice PEPPERs (Program for Evaluating Payment Patterns Electronic Report) was released in April 2017. Using information pulled directly from Medicare claims files, PEPPER reports provide invaluable benchmarking information about a hospice’s performance in specific “target” areas in comparison with three specific groups – all hospices in the state, in the Medicare Administrative Contractor jurisdiction and in the country.
How does your hospice compare? Is your hospice taking full advantage of this report? Do you understand its importance as well as how to interpret and to use the information? The government knows the answer to these questions, and you should too.
Join this informative audio conference session by expert speaker Susan Balfour, BA, RN, and you will have all your questions answered. This event will take you through hospice PEPPER, the data used, certain focus areas, and more.
