Data Details

The Inpatient Psychiatric Facility Quality Reporting (IPFQR) program is a pay-for-reporting program intended to provide consumers with quality of care information to make more informed decisions about health care options. To meet the IPFQR program requirements, Inpatient Psychiatric Facilities (IPFs) are required to submit all quality measures to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). Psychiatric facilities that are eligible for this program may have their Medicare payments reduced if they do not report. Download the facility, state and national datasets in access or csv format.
