Modern Healthcare

The CMS announced it has updated its Hospital Compare and Nursing Home Compare consumer websites with new quality measures, easier-to-use navigation and mobile-ready capabilities.

Hospital Compare, which the CMS says has drawn more than 1.2 million visitors so far this year, now includes hospital-specific data on two new quality measures related to hospitals’ use of imaging: outpatients who received cardiac imaging stress tests before low-risk outpatient surgery, and outpatients with brain CT scans who got a sinus CT scan at the same time.
