Project Lead: Ira Moscovice

The lack of nationally comparable swing-bed quality measure data for CAHs means that they are not able to demonstrate the quality of care provided to swing-bed patients, and limits their ability to participate in alternative payment models that include post-acute care.This project will identify quality measures to be used by CAHs to assess the quality of care provided to their swing-bed patients, and recommend appropriate uses of the measures.
