The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has released Hospital Compare October preview reports for hospitals participating in the Inpatient Quality Reporting (IQR), Prospective Payment SystemExempt Cancer Hospital Quality Reporting (PCHQR), and Hospital Outpatient Quality Reporting (OQR) programs.

The preview data is available through Aug. 14 on the QualityNet Secure Portal. CMS encourages hospitals to download and save a copy of their report. This fall, the agency will post the data publicly on Hospital Compare, where Medicare beneficiaries and the public can review quality measure data for participating hospitals and facilities.

For more information, health care providers can view quick reference guides for preview data in the IQR, PCHQR, and OQR programs. Hospitals can submit questions related to the IQR or PCHQR programs through CMS’ inpatient questions and answers tool. Submit questions related to the OQR program through the outpatient questions and answers tool.
