Hospice Quality Public Reporting: Hospice Compare Now Live!
Hospice Compare – Now Live!
On August 16, 2017 CMS unveiled the new Hospice Compare website. The goal of Hospice Compare is to help consumers compare hospice providers on their performance and assist consumers in making decisions that are right for them. Providers can start a conversation with their patients and family members about how the new Hospice Compare website impacts them by:
- Explaining that the compare website provides a snapshot of the quality of care a hospice offers;
- Encouraging patients and their family members to review quality ratings; and
- Helping to strengthen patients and family members’ ability to make the best decisions for their care.
