Two deadlines are approaching for hospitals to preview data on their star ratings and quality reporting programs.
Hospitals have 30 days from the Aug. 5 upload date to preview and download their October 2016 Hospital Compare overall star ratings hospital-specific report (HSR) on QualityNet. In addition, October preview data for the inpatient quality reporting (IQR) and outpatient quality reporting (OQR) programs are available for download until Aug. 19.
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services encourages hospitals to view their HSRs with their IQR and OQR preview data side by side, while both are still available.
