Overall Hospital Quality Star Ratings.
Hospital rating programs have received significant public attention, but concerns have been raised regarding their usefulness. This website provides resources to augment usability of this data including reports describing the methodology used by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services to generate the information provided on the Hospital Compare website. In 2021 the process was adjusted to employ a 5-measure standardization process examining data submitted associated with mortality, readmission, patient experience, care timeliness/effectiveness and safety.
