CMS HOPE Tool Conference Call

August 27, 2019


The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) will be hosting an Open Door Forum conference call to discuss the status of the Hospice Outcomes and Patient Evaluation (HOPE) tool, previously known as Developing a Hospice Patient Assessment Tool.

The call will be held on Thursday, September 12, 2019, from 2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. (ET).

The HOPE tool provides a standardized data collection process to assess patient needs during their last days of life and to provide clinical data to potentially inform payment changes.

The CMS announcement and dial-in information can be found here. More information about the HOPE tool can be found here.
