During this call, Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) subject matter experts discuss the development of the Data Element Library.

A question and answer session will follow the presentation, including an opportunity for registrants to provide feedback on the Library. The Improving Medicare Post-Acute Care Transformation (IMPACT) Act requires the reporting of standardized patient assessment data by Post-Acute Care (PAC) providers, including skilled nursing facilities, home health agencies, inpatient rehabilitation facilities, and long-term care hospitals. It specifies that certain data elements must be standardized and interoperable to allow for the exchange and use of data among these PAC and other providers to facilitate coordinated care and improved beneficiary outcomes.
