Updated Guidance on How to Update Demographic Data within ASPEN
The demographic data displayed on Hospice Compare is generated from the information stored in the Automated Survey Processing Environment (ASPEN) system. Guidance on how to update a providerâ€™s demographic information such as address, telephone number, and ownership with their state ASPEN coordinator is now available. View the How to Update Demographic Data 11.14.17 PDF on the Hospice Quality Public Reporting webpage for further information as well as more details on the cutoff dates for changes to demographic information in the ASPEN system.
Please note: When requesting updates to your demographic data, it is important to ask for updates to your data within the ASPEN system, and not your data on the Hospice Compare site.
