CMS Compare: Providers and Care Settings

Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) recently announced​ that the eight different “compare” sites which includes Hospital, Nursing Home, Home Health, Dialysis Facility, Long-term Care Hospital, Inpatient Rehabilitation Facility, Physician and Hospice will be integrating this spring. This is a part of the CMS focus on how to empower patients to select and access the right care from the right provider and building on the President’s Executive Order to improve Medicare for our nation’s seniors. CMS plans to combine and standardize these eight existing Compare tools, allowing users to access the same information through a single point of entry and simplified navigation to find the information that is currently divided in places like Nursing Home Compare and Hospital Compare.​ CMS is also working to develop an improved companion portal that Medicare researchers and stakeholders can use to access  more detailed data that is important to them. This new “Provider Data Catalog” will reside on CMS.gov. At this point, CMS says the information on these sites will not change.​
