The Alliance submitted comments to CMS’ Hospital Inpatient Prospective Payment System for Acute Care Hospitals and the Long-Term Care Hospital Prospective Payment System and Fiscal Year 2018 Rates (CMS-1677-P). Comments advocated for the removal of ulcer measure NQF #0678, replacing it with a modified version of the measure entitled, “Changes in Skin Integrity Post Acute Care: Pressure Ulcer: Injury.” Comments also expressed the need for clarification on terminology used throughout the regulation related to pressure ulcers and injuries. The Alliance supported the proposed adoption of four malnutrition eCQMs measures.
