What do the two star ratings measure?

Homecare Insider, August 1, 2016

CMS created the five-star rating systems to assist patients, families, and caregivers in comparing their options for care, including home health. The Patient survey star rating is based on patients’ and families’ experience of care measures (including HHCAHPS survey data). The quality of patient care star rating is based on OASIS assessments and claims data.
