Skilled nursing facilities can now preview their quality measure data for the SNF Quality Reporting Program in the Certification and Survey Provider Enhanced Reporting (CASPER) application, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services announced last month. The Review and Correct reports contain quality measure information at the facility level, and allow providers to obtain aggregate performance for the past four full quarters. CMS has recalculated all quality measure data for first-quarter 2017 and encourages providers to view the updated results. To view the reports, log into the CMS Network and access the QIES Systems for Providers webpage, then select the CASPER Reporting link.
