On March 19, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services released the recording of the February Hospice Item Set (HIS) data collection training, viewable by clicking here. This training covers HIS data collection processes including item-specific instructions for each item in the HIS, along with tips and examples for HIS items.
The HIS Training follows closely along with the HIS Manual and covers these HIS Training Slides. The manual is an essential tool in understanding how to complete the HIS and it is recommend you review it before viewing the training.
Medicare-certified hospices must submit a HIS-Admission and HIS-Discharge record for each patient admission on or after July 1, 2014. Please also remember that an HIS Technical Training covering technical submission processes and data submission software will be provided online in May. CMS will announce additional training information at a later date.
