In 2016, CMS added new quality measures to determine a nursing home’s 5-star rating on the Nursing Home Compare section of Medicare.gov. These measures are based on Medicare claims data and the minimum data set (MDS), and include statistics such as rehospitilization rate and emergency room use.
Check out the infographics below to see what these new measures are based on, as well as tips on how you can improve your 5-star rating.
The list on the left may seem easier said than done, but we can help! Our Engage Quality and Compliance Tool automates the CASPER Reporting process, and is able to pull reports monthly, quarterly, and annually. The reports are only a few clicks away, so it’s easy to view them and start taking steps to fixing potential problem areas.
Reviewing your CASPER reports is essential to improving your Five-Star Quality Rating as quickly as possible. This information is valuable, and reviewing it frequently is what separates great facilities from everyone else.
