Your LTC Trend Tracker Quarter 1 Top-Line Publication

On February 26, LTC Trend Tracker users should have received the latest Your Top-Line publication, produced by LTC Trend Tracker, in their email inboxes. The report was sent with the subject line, "LTC Trend Tracker Quarter 1 Publication".

This resource, available exclusively to AHCA/NCAL Trend Tracker users, combines metrics and graphics to outline each facility's progress on Five-Star performance, the AHCA/NCAL Quality Initiative, and other necessary data to help members achieve your desired quality goals.

The 2018 Quarter 1 edition of Your Top-Line publication also includes a Resident Profile with new features that:
  • Provide the information you need to begin Component 1 of the annual Facility Assessment required under CMS's Requirements of Participation (§483.70(e)). 
  • Help your facility determine the resources required to provide person-centered care and the services your residents need in both day-to-day operations and emergencies.
As a reminder, LTC Trend Tracker has a new and improved Five Star Predictor Tool that allows users to see how potential changes in individual quality measures may impact that center's Five-Star QM rating. Facilities can enter potential rates for each individual quality measure (QM) to predict how that change will affect the facility's Five-Star QM total points and rating.

If you did not see the Your Top-Line publication email come through to your inbox, you can take the below steps to view the report:
  • After logging in to LTC Trend Tracker, click on “Manage Publications”, and then “View and Download Publications”. You can then select the publication you wish to view.
  • Search your clutter or spam folder for the email. Be sure to add the email address that the publication was sent from,, to your Safe Sender list to prevent any future issues receiving the email.
