CMS rolls out five-star rating system

Case Management Insider, May 5, 2015

Consumers looking for information about hospitals can now consult a simple star rating system rolled out by CMS in April. The five-star rating system relies on patient responses to an 11-question survey called the Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems.

So far, HealthLeaders Media reports that only 7% of hospitals received a five-star rating. The bulk fell into the three-star range.
