Association between the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services hospital star rating and patient outcomes.
Wang DE, Tsugawa Y, Figueroa JF, Jha AK. JAMA Intern Med. 2016;176:848-850.
Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services star ratings are based on patient experience surveys, and the relationship between such ratings and patient outcomes has not been well-established. This secondary data analysis found that hospitals with higher star ratings had lower 30-day mortality and readmission rates. The authors suggest that these ratings may lead patients to higher-performing hospitals.
