Beginning today through May 5, hospitals participating in the inpatient, outpatient and prospective payment system-exempt cancer hospital quality reporting programs can preview their overall hospital quality star rating and other quality data to be added to the Hospital Compare website in July. The inpatient preview reports, hospital-specific reports and overall hospital quality star ratings will not include Patient Safety Indicator results for fiscal year 2018 due to a PSI software issue, CMS said. As a result, the overall hospital quality star rating for July will be updated using fiscal year 2017 PSI results. CMS anticipates that updated FY 2018 PSI results will be available for the October preview period, and incorporated into the October 2017 public release of star ratings. To access the hospital-specific overall star rating and inpatient and outpatient preview reports, visit the QualityNet Secure Portal.
