New Five-Star Ratings Live on Nursing Home Compare

research@ahca.org

Today, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) published new Five-Star rankings on its Nursing Home Compare (NHC) website that reflect several significant updates to all three components of the system - survey, staffing and quality. A summary of the changes can be found here (member login required).

On April 8, AHCA hosted a webinar that walked through these new changes. Members can access the recorded webinar and other resources here.

AHCA has several tools to help members continue to improve. AHCA/NCAL's LTC Trend Tracker here is a one-stop-shop that allows members to gain timely information and valuable insight about their own performance as well as the entire profession's, including reports that capture Five-Star and Quality Measure (QM) rates.

For questions on the new Five-Star ratings, please email research@ahca.org.
