Post-Acute Care (PAC) Quality Reporting Programs (QRP) Demographic Data Transition

October 21, 2022
Policy Snapshot

Historically provider demographic data have been maintained in the Automated Survey Processing Environment or ASPEN software; however, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) will be transitioning to use the demographic information from the Provider Enrollment, Chain and Ownership System (PECOS). While this transition is underway, a final date when all demographic data will be obtained from PECOS has not been identified. During this transition, all PAC providers will be responsible for ensuring that their latest demographic data are updated and available in both ASPEN (SNF/NFs, IRFs, and LTCHs) or iQIES (HHAs and Hospices) and PECOS systems.

A referencing document that outlines the steps each PAC provider should follow can be accessed in the downloads section of the Help Desks webpage. If you have any questions regarding this updated process, please contact the iQIES help desk by email at or by phone at (800) 339-9313.
