Hospital star ratings will not be updated in July

June 8, 2017

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) will not update the overall hospital quality star ratings on Hospital Compare in July as scheduled, according to an article on the American Hospital Association website.

Data issues with three of the measures included in the safety group score are being blamed for the delay, according to a QualityNet notice.
