1 Gina Throneberry, RN, MBA, CASC, CNOR Director of Education and Clinical Affairs Ambulatory Surgery Center Association (ASCA)

2  Participants will: Identify quality reporting by Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) for Ambulatory Surgery Centers (ASCs) Understand the history of quality measure development Learn to collect and report the data for the required quality measures

3  Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) / State  Life Safety Code (LSC)  Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA)  Food and Drug Administration (FDA)  Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)  Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA)  Federal Aviation Administration (FAA)

4 American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009  Stimulus money provided the down payment for a nationwide effort to reduce health care associated infections in stand- alone or same-day surgical centers.  Interpretive Guidelines for the Conditions for Coverage provide guidance on the meaning of the rules and further advice on how ASCs should comply.  State Operations Manual Guidance/Guidance/Manuals/Downloads/som107ap_l_ambulatory.pdf  Infection Control Surveyor Worksheet Guidance/Guidance/Manuals/downloads/som107_exhibit_351.pdf

5  Medicare requires ASCs to comply with the 2000 edition of the Life Safety Code, updated and published by the National Fire Protection Association.

6  In April 2014, CMS announced the proposal to adopt the National Fire Protection Association’s (NFPA) 2012 editions of the Life Safety Code (LSC) and the Health Care Facilities Code (HCFC). ◦ The requirement is currently a 1-hour minimum separation between ASCs and other adjacent tenants/occupancies. This proposal would require a 2-hour separation in un-sprinkled buildings. ◦ More extensive alarms, and more elaborate medical air compressors and clinical vacuum on piped medical gas systems would be required which would cause needed upgrades to systems. ◦ For windowless anesthetizing locations: “The ASC must have a supply and exhaust system that (i) Automatically vents smoke and products of combustion, (ii) Prevents recirculation of smoke originating within the surgical suite, and (iii) Prevents the circulation of smoke entering the system intake. These requirements would impact the design, installation, and operation of the entire HVAC system for a facility.

7  Occupational Exposure to Bloodborne Pathogens 29CFR ument?p_table=standards&p_id=10051  OSHA has two different types of inspections: Enforcement inspections determined by OSHA (unannounced) Consultation services that are requested by the facility (scheduled)

8  These surveys focus on the ASC’s response to recalls.

9  Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) gives the EPA the authority to control hazardous waste from the “cradle to the grave”. This includes the generation, transportation, treatment, storage, and disposal of hazardous waste.  Hazardous Pharmaceutical Waste under the RCRA: Contains a “P” (acutely hazardous) or “U” (toxic) listed waste as the sole ingredient; or Exhibits at least one “characteristic” of a hazardous waste  It is recommended to involve the center’s consulting pharmacist to make certain the center is in compliance with federal and state regulations.

10  Questions and Answers regarding DEA 222 forms- 22.htm 22.htm

11  These surveys examine: the process of transporting radioactive materials training of ASC staff in handling radioactive materials the ASC’s policies on radioactive materials (process for shipping of materials, process for return of product, how to handle hazards, staff training, consultant physicist, etc.)

19  Released August 2012  The final rule can be accessed at (https://s3.amazonaws.com/public- inspection.federalregister.gov/ pdf)https://s3.amazonaws.com/public- inspection.federalregister.gov/ pdf  This is the vehicle for rulemaking on the specifics of the ASC quality reporting program; ASC information begins on page 1534; Section E. ◦ Participation in the ASC Quality Reporting Program; Page 1540 ◦ Limited details for public reporting of data; Page 1541 ◦ Data completeness and validation; Page 1548 ◦ Extraordinary circumstances; Page 1554 ◦ Reconsideration and appeals process; Page 1558

20  Once an ASC submits any quality measure data, the center would be considered participating  The ASC will continue to be considered a participant, regardless of whether the ASC continues to submit quality measure data, until formally withdrawing from the program  An ASC that wishes to withdraw from the ASC Quality Reporting (ASCQR) Program must fill out an online withdrawal form: Located on the QualityNet website Click on left hand side: how to participate then Click on left hand side: how to withdraw  An ASC can withdraw at any time up to August 31 prior to the payment determination year  An ASC that withdraws will incur a 2% reduction in its Annual Payment Update (APU) and any subsequent year the ASC is not participating

21  Process was established in the FY 2013 IPPS/LTCH PPS final rule (77 FR through 53643)  CMS may grant a waiver or extension to ASCs for data submission requirements if it is determined that a systemic problem with a data collection system directly or indirectly affects the ability to enter data  Needs to be submitted within 45 days of the extraordinary circumstance  Form (Extraordinary Circumstances) is located on click on ASC tab; form is located on the left side of the page  In the future this process will be referred to as the Extraordinary Circumstances Extensions or Exemptions Process

22  Process was established in the FY 2013 IPPS/LTCH PPS final rule (77 FR through 53644)  Reconsideration request form must be submitted by March 17 of the affected payment year  CMS intends to complete any reconsideration reviews and communicate results within 90 days following the deadline (March 17 of the affected payment year)  Form (Annual Payment Update (APU) reconsideration) is located on click on ASC tab; form is located on the left side of the pagewww.qualitynet.org

64  Claims based measure  No additional data submission from ASCs  The measure outcome is all unplanned hospital visits (admissions, observation stays, and emergency department [ED] visits) within 7 days of the procedure.

65  In 2015, Medicare will perform a “dry run” of this measure.  A dry run is a preliminary analysis of data in which ASCs may review their measure results, and ask questions about and become familiar with the measure methodology.  The most recent complete claims samples (usually 6-9 months prior to the start date) for dry runs will be used.

66  The dry run will generate confidential reports at the patient level, indicating whether the patient had a hospital visit, the type of visit (admission, ER visit, or observational stay), the admitting facility, and the principal discharge diagnosis.  The ASC will have the opportunity to receive individual patient data and information contained within individual patient records in order to identify performance gaps and develop quality improvement strategies.  Dry runs results ARE NOT linked to public reporting or payment determinations.  ASCs can review their confidential dry run reports at

67  For the CY 2018 payment determination, paid Medicare Fee For Service claims from January 1 – December 31, 2016 will be used (calendar years 2 years before the payment determination calendar year.
