Revised Nursing Home Compare Website Poised to Launch Later This Month

Posted on July 3, 2012 in Long-Term Care, Home Health & Hospice

Written by: Bufford, David W.

The Nursing Home Compare website, originally launched in 1998, is set to launch with a redesign July 19th.  The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) claims the redesign adopts industry design and usability best practices while also incorporating a considerable amount of new information to increase transparency and usability for consumers.  

The redesigned website will include many new types of information previously unavailable.  This includes:

  • Quality measures based on MDS 3.0 data.  Additionally, CMS will include data on the use of anti-psychotic medications.
  • Detailed CMS-2567 forms.
  • CMS will post information on the legal business names of nursing homes to increase ownership transparency.
  • Physical therapist hours per resident will be reported.

Nursing home providers should be able to preview their information now.
