Hospice Care Index & Hospice Visits in Last Days of Life

New Publicly Reported Quality Measures

January 18, 2022 | 10:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.



Two new claims-based measures will be publicly reported in 2022 – HCI and HVLDL. The HCI is brand new to hospices and includes ten different indicators of performance comprising the Index. It is a measure that is complex and utilizes hospice claims data over a two-year period. This session will focus primarily on these aspects of the HCI and what hospices should be addressing in daily operations to impact the HCI, but will also include a review of the HVLDL and its most frequently asked questions.


  1. Describe the HCI measure and each of its ten indicators
  2. Explain the performance calculations for the ten HCI indicators and the Index
  3. Share the expected public reporting timeframe for the HCI
