CMS takes input on changes to hospital star ratings

CMS held a listening session Sept. 19 to receive feedback on potential changes to its Overall Hospital Star Ratings methodology, according to AHA News.

In August, CMS shared plans to publicize proposed methodology changes next year and finalize them prior to its 2021 star ratings update.

Proposed changes will be largely based on public feedback. The agency received more than 800 responses during a public comment period on the ratings system that ended in March 2019.

During the listening session, CMS aimed to receive additional feedback on the proposed changes from key stakeholders, such as the American Hospital Association.
