CMS Launches Hospice Compare
August 16, 2017 the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) launched the highly-anticipated Hospice Compare website. Consumers now have access to national data that allows for hospice comparison based on quality measures provided by Medicare certified agencies throughout the United States.
The Hospice Compare website provides patients, family members, caregivers, and healthcare providers to compare hospice providers based on important quality metrics such as the percentage of patients screened for pain, or whether patients' preferences are being met. The information submitted by over 3,800 hospices comes from evaluations, ratings and surveys from patients' family and friends
