Editor’s Note

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) announced on June 12 that it would postpone the planned July update to its overall Hospital Quality Star Ratings.

CMS says the delay will allow time for more analysis of the effects of changes made to some of the measures included in the ratings and to address stakeholder concerns.

The agency will seek additional feedback from a multi-disciplinary expert panel and provider leadership workgroup, and it will conduct a public comment period.
