Ad-hoc Review: Expansion of Settings 

Project Status: Completed

Ad Hoc Review: Expansion of Settings for Measures 0680 and 0682

Reason for Request:

CMS has updated measures 0680 [Percent of Residents or Patients Who Were Assessed and Appropriately Given the Seasonal Influenza Vaccine(Short-Stay)] and 0682 [Percent of Residents Assessed and Appropriately Given the Pneumococcal Vaccine (Short-Stay)] for use in inpatient rehabilitation facilities and long-term acute care hospitals. The expansion of the measure to different settings triggers an ad hoc review of these measures as specified in the Criteria for Justification of Ad Hoc Review published in the Consensus Standards Maintenance and Endorsement Cycle Process.

About this Review

Justification for Ad Hoc Review
Criterion 3: Material changes have been made to a currently endorsed measure (e.g., expansion of a measure to a different population or setting). This is primarily a review of the measures’ technical properties as they are adapted for use in new settings and whether the new settings impact the measures' adherence to the NQF Scientific Acceptability criterion.

Requestor of Ad Hoc Review
Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS)

Associated NQF Project
