What are the three main objectives of the IMPACT Act that implicate the spectrum of post-acute care providers?

Homecare Insider, July 28, 2014

The IMPACT Act has three main objectives that implicate the spectrum of PAC providers:

  1. Require PAC providers to report standardized patient assessment data, data on quality measures, and data on resource use and other measures
  2. Require the data to be interoperable to allow for its exchange among PAC and other providers to give them access to longitudinal information so as to facilitate coordinated care and improve Medicare beneficiary outcomes
  3. Modify PAC assessment instruments applicable to PAC providers for the submission of standardized patient assessment data on such providers and to enable assessment data comparison across all such providers
