The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services tomorrow will host a call on its proposed star rating system for overall hospital-level quality. The call will review the overall star ratings methodology, Hospital-Specific Reports and lessons learned from the agency’s “dry run” test of the system, underway through Aug. 17. CMS encourages hospitals to review their results from the dry run and email their questions and comments to cmsstarratings@lantanagroup.com. For more on the dry run, including links to a mock report and HSR User Guide, visit www.qualitynet.org.
