As a reminder, the FY 2023 SNF PPS Final Rule adopted one new quality measure into the SNF QRP: the Influenza Vaccination Coverage among Healthcare Personnel (HCP) measure. This data must be entered into the NHSN using Healthcare Personnel Safety (HPS) Component. The deadline to report the annual healthcare personnel influenza vaccination summary data through the NHSN HPS Component is May 15, 2023. Failure to submit the required quality data may result in a two-percentage-point (2%) reduction in the SNF’s annual rate update (i.e., Annual Payment Update [APU]).
