The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services is conducting through Sept. 30 a second review and corrections period for the fiscal year 2017 Hospital Acquired Condition Reduction Program due to an error in calculating Clostridium difficile infection performance during the first two quarters of 2014. CMS also has updated the baseline period performance standard for the FY 2018 value-based purchasing program, and intends to update the archived databases of Hospital Compare to reflect corrected performance data. For more information, see CMS’s QualityNet website.
