KHA Quality Reports Mailed
Friday, January 03, 2014 5:17 PM
Last week, KHA e-mailed the most recent Pay for Performance (P4P) quality reports to hospitals. The Quarterly Update is based on Hospital Compare’s Quarterly (third quarter 2013) Data Release.
This analysis is designed to provide hospitals with a comparative review over time of the quality data collected by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) and published on the Hospital Compare website. All of the sources, time periods and measures analyzed are defined in the the included description document. Hospital performance, U.S. average, and U.S. top 10 performance performance are from the quarterly updates to the CMS Hospital Compare quality database from December 2010 (fourth quarter 2010) through December 2013 (fourth quarter 2013) when available. The measure collection dates related to these database updates are listed directly on the report.
Please note that this analysis evaluates performance scores for ALL hospitals included in CMS' Hospital Compare database regardless of estimated Value-Based Purchasing (VBP) Program eligibility.
