Revision to Performance Standards for the Standardized Readmissions Ratio Clinical Measure in the Payment Year 2017 End-Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) Quality Incentive Program (QIP)

CMS has recently determined that a data irregularity led to the publication of erroneous performance standards for the Standardized Readmissions Ratio (SRR) clinical measure in the Payment Year (PY) 2017 ESRD QIP. Finalized policy (79 FR 66182) established that the PY 2017 performance standards would be based on the 90th, 15th, and 50th percentile of national performance in CY 2013.
