CMS delays posting hospital infection data
Modern Healthcare

The CMS has once again postponed plans to post new data on hospital-acquired conditions on the government’s Hospital Compare website. The agency had initially planned to make the information public on Sept. 23 following a seven-day preview period for hospitals. That date was pushed back to Sept. 28, but the CMS has since delayed the data release again because of an error in its data file. The agency has not yet specified a new release date.
