NEW Home Health Star Rating Resources Available

WIth the April 11th Home Health Compare quarterly refresh, the Quality of Patient Care Star Ratings were first publicly reported WITHOUT the Influenza Immunization Received for Current Flu Season Measure.  The removal of the Influenza Vaccination Measure from the star ratings calculation has led to the update of resources related to the Quality of Patient Care Star Ratings.  CMS posted the following documents on the Home Health Quality Initiatives website under Star Ratings in the downloads section at the bottom of the page:

  • Quality of Patient Care Star Ratings FAQs (updated for April 2018)
  • Quality of Patient Care Star Ratings Fact Sheet (April 2018)
  • Quality of Patient Care Star Ratings Methodology (April 2018)
