HCAHPS Hospital Compare Star Ratings

 

The HCAHPS survey results have been publicly reported on Hospital Compare since 2008.  On April 16, 2015, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) introduced a star rating system for hospital performance on select quality metrics with the goal of making scores simpler for consumers to interpret.  The Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HCAHPS) metrics were among the measures selected for publication on the Hospital Compare website as a star rating system.
