    Medicare Quality Pay-for-Performance Report

    This custom report illustrates step by step how your hospital's performance on individual Medicare quality measures is transformed into payment adjustments, including Hospital Readmission Reduction Program (HRRP), Hospital Value-Based Purchasing (HVBP), and Hospital-Acquired Conditions (HAC) Reduction Program. The reports are generated annually in the beginning of the calendar year.

    • Has my performance improved over time?
