CMS To Update Overall Hospital Star Ratings in February

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services will update its overall hospital quality star ratings on Hospital Compare in February, the agency announced this past week. The January refresh of other data on Hospital Compare also will move to February. Hospitals in the inpatient, outpatient and prospective payment system-exempt cancer hospital quality reporting programs and inpatient psychiatric facility quality reporting program will be able to preview their overall star ratings and other data updates relevant to them for February at QualityNet in early December. CMS also will host a Nov. 27 webinar on the new QualityNet user interface for these quality reporting programs. In July, CMS delayed updating the overall star ratings to analyze and address stakeholder concerns with the data.
