Star Ratings Follow-Up

This is the second installment of podcasts about the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services—otherwise known as CMS—and their Hospital Star Ratings Program. Last time we heard from Akin Demehin and Caitlin Gillooley, who lead AHA’s work on policy regarding quality of care, CMS had proposed several changes to the Star Ratings Methodology. Since then, the agency has finalized some—but not all—of those changes.
