Sneak Peek at the HOPE Tool

Webinar Details:

HOPE is no longer just an idea. The Hospice Outcomes and Patient Evaluation assessment tool for hospices will be part of every hospice’s processes beginning October 1, 2025. The new HOPE assessment instrument will replace the Hospice Item Set in Medicare’s Hospice Quality Reporting Program. What does HOPE implementation mean for hospice clinicians and agencies? Join this webinar with presenter Beth Noyce for an introduction to the new HOPE tool. Hospices that don’t capture and successfully submit 90% of required HQRP data receive a 4% pay cut. Nobody can afford that. Be ready when HOPE data is part of that requirement.

Learning Objective 

  • Successful participants will learn what data the HOPE assessment tool captures.
  • Attendees will be able to describe the two process measures to soon become part of the HOPE tool.
  • Engaged learners will be prepared to study further the HOPE assessment tool in preparation for its implementation.
  • Those who take part will recognize how to obtain currently available as well as future updates from Medicare about the HOPE tool.
