The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services June 24 will host a national provider call on its proposed methodology for determining the overall star ratings for measures on Hospital Compare, which the agency will make publicly available soon. On the call, from 1:30 to 3 p.m. ET, CMS says it will discuss the proposed methodology, a dry run of the methodology and hospital specific reports. In April, CMS added star ratings for hospitals reporting consumer perception survey measures at Hospital Compare. Hospitals are encouraged to register and submit questions in advance for the June 24 call.
