CMS to Launch Re-designed Website

The CMS launched the re-designed Nursing Home Compare website on July 19th.  CMS adopted industry best practices for design and usability while incorporating a significant amount of new information.

 Below is a list of new types of information that can be found on the site.

 

  • Quality measures based on MDS 3.0 data. The MDS 3.0 assessments will replace the MDS 2.0-based quality measures previously posted on Nursing Home Compare.   In addition, CMS will post data on two measures of use of anti-psychotic medication use (short-stay incidence and long-stay prevalence). 
     
  • Detailed Inspection Reports (Form CMS-2567). 
     
  • Ownership information. CMS will post information on the legal business names of nursing homes.

 

  • Information on Physical Therapist staffing levels. Physical Therapist hours per resident day will be reported.
