CMS to publicly report hospitals' sepsis performance in July

CMS will publicly report hospitals' performance on the Sepsis Core Measure beginning with the next Hospital Compare release in July 2018.

CMS will release hospitals' sepsis performance July 25, based on data from the first quarter of 2017 through the third quarter of 2017. The preview period for this change spanned from May 4 to June 2.

"With each release, the most recent quarter is added, and older quarters removed, so a full rolling year's worth of performance data are included, similar to other chart abstracted measures," CMS said in a February 2018 educational webinar on the Hospital Inpatient Quality Reporting Program.

By October 2018, the first full year of sepsis data will be available for 2017.
