The Hospice Care Index – A Claims-Based Measure of Quality for Hospice Care

1 min read

The Hospice Care Index (HCI) is a new claims-based measure for the Hospice Quality Reporting Program. Public reporting of this measure on Care Compare begins in August 2022. The HCI strengthens our quality reporting program, while also providing families and patients the information they need to decide which hospice is right for them. The HCI takes ten claims-based indicators into consideration, including weekend visits, per-beneficiary spending, and the number of visits near death.
