The Centers for Medicare & Medicare Services today alerted hospitals to an error in some hospital-specific reports for hospital-acquired conditions distributed June 9 to hospitals and critical access hospitals. The reports had the wrong hospital name in Table 2, but all of the data was correct for the hospital receiving the report. Corrected reports will be distributed to hospitals that received the error. Hospitals should review their HSRs, including discharge-level data, and submit any questions by 11:59 p.m. PT on July 12 to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line: DRA HAC Preview Period Inquiry. The reports should not be emailed as they contain personally identifiable information and protected health information.
