Introduction to the Pre-Implementation Performance Report (PIPR)
As the expanded HHVBP Model prepares to start the first performance year on January 1, 2023, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) issued the November 2022 Pre-Implementation Performance Report (PIPR) to competing home health agencies (HHAs). The PIPRs provide HHAs with data on their quality measure performance used in the expanded HHVBP Model, with comparison to HHAs nationally within peer cohorts.

Additionally, the CY 2023 Home Health (HH) Prospective Payment System (PPS) final rule amended the Model baseline year from CY 2019 to CY 2022 starting in the CY 2023 performance year to enable CMS to measure competing HHAs performance on benchmarks and achievement thresholds that are more current. The PIPRs provide a preview of where your agency’s performance falls in regard to the new baseline year, in advance of the release of the first Interim Performance Reports (IPRs) in July 2023.

The November 2022 PIPR is now available to download from the Internet Quality Improvement Evaluation System (iQIES). Instructions on how to access the PIPRs are available on the Expanded HHVBP Model webpage, under Model Reports.

To assist HHAs in understanding the purpose, content, and use of the PIPRs, the HHVBP Technical Assistance (TA) team is hosting this live streaming event, “Introduction to the Pre-Implementation Performance Report (PIPR)”. This event will include a live Q&A session. The recording used for this event and an accompanying written resource are now available on the Expanded HHVBP Model webpage, under Model Reports.
