Hospital Compare Overall Hospital Star Ratings Reports Released

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) this week released Hospital-Specific Reports (HSRs) with the December 2017 Hospital Compare Overall Hospital Quality Star Ratings.

Hospitals may access HSRs through the QualityNet Secure Portal for the next 30 days. CMS encourages hospitals to download and save a copy of the report for future reference. The agency provided a summary of methodology enhancements for December 2017 and will issue supplemental Quarterly Updates and Specifications reports at a later date to help hospitals interpret their HSR results.

CMS will host a webinar on Nov. 30 at 2 pm ET to review each of the methodology enhancements and analyze their impact on star ratings results.

Contact the Hospital Compare Overall Hospital Rating Team at with questions about the Hospital Compare overall star rating.

Contact Director of Policy Erin O’Malley at or 202.585.0127 with additional questions.
