CMS Updates Consumer Resources for Comparing Hospital Quality

Posted on Friday, March 1, 2019 9:39 PM

This week, CMS updated hospital performance data on both the Hospital Compare and data.medicare.gov websites.  This data is to allow patients to feel empowered to make informed healthcare decisions.

“The Hospital Compare website and Star Ratings System are valuable consumer tools that provide helpful and important information on the safety and quality of our nation’s hospitals,” said CMS Administrator, Seema Verma. “These decision-making tools offer greater transparency on hospital performance for a wide variety of users – patients, caregivers, families, and the broader healthcare industry. We constantly aim to improve these resources with feedback from stakeholders, and we are confident this latest update of Hospital Compare data further strengthens this data.”
