CMS launches streamlined dashboard of 8 existing healthcare compare tools

CMS launched Care Compare Sept. 3, a streamlined redesign of eight existing CMS healthcare compare tools available on Medicare.gov. 

As part of the Trump administration's eMedicare initiative, Care Compare provides a single user-friendly interface that provides information about physicians, hospitals, nursing homes, home health services, hospice care, inpatient rehabilitation facilities, long-term care hospitals, and dialysis facilities all on one site.

The only change is the way information is displayed; the CMS measures and data have not changed. During the transition period, the original eight compare tools will still be available while CMS gathers feedback and considers additional improvements.
