Hospitals: Get sneak peek of updated star ratings

Now through May 5, hospitals can preview their Overall Hospital Star Ratings before CMS makes the update public in July, according to AHA News Now.

Hospitals can access the preview reports by logging on to the QualityNet Secure Portal. "Hospitals are encouraged to access and download reports early in the preview period in order to have time for a thorough review," according to a QualityNet release.

Additionally, CMS announced it will update the overall star ratings three times this year, instead of the previously announced two updates, because of a delayed Patient Safety Indicator update. The updates will occur in July, October and December.
