CMS adds new sepsis measure to Hospital Compare

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services has posted the July update to the Hospital Compare website, which includes a new measure on the percentage of patients who receive appropriate care for severe sepsis and septic shock. CMS recently postponed the update of overall hospital star ratings for July after the American Hospital Association and others raised questions regarding data in the star ratings preview reports. The agency today said it has revised the Hospital Compare schedule so that the December update will now occur in January. Going forward, the website will be refreshed each January, April, July and October.
