PPS Exempt Cancer Hospitals (PCHQR) Quality Reporting

About the PCQHR Program:
The Prospective Payment System (PPS)-Exempt Cancer Hospital Quality Reporting (PCHQR) Program was developed as mandated by Section 3005 of the Affordable Care Act (Public Law 111-148).

The PCHQR program is intended to equip consumers with quality-of-care information to make more informed decisions about healthcare options. It is also intended to encourage hospitals and clinicians to improve the quality of inpatient care that is provided to Medicare beneficiaries. A major part of the program supports improvement by ensuring that providers are aware of and reporting on best practices for their respective facilities and type of care.

To meet the PCHQR Program requirements, PPS-Exempt Cancer Hospitals (PCHs) are required to submit specific quality measures related to the PCHQR Program to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). Mandated reporting began with the Fiscal Year (FY) 2014 payment determination year. Participating facilities must comply with the program requirements set forth in the FY 2013 IPPS/LTCH Final Rule, including public reporting of the measure rates on the Provider Data Catalog (PDC).
