USA Today writes the Department of Veterans Affairs will resume sharing data on the quality of care at its facilities with CMS Hospital Compare on October 1, the agency said Tuesday. Since July 1, 2016 the VA had stopped submitting data to Hospital Compare (see related blog post). In 2014, new legislation (Choice Act) required the VA to report more comprehensive data about patient safety, quality of care and outcome measures to CMS. Lawyers from HHS had advised the administration to stop reporting data until CMS and the VA could strike a new deal on how to share information. According to USA Today, the VA inked a new agreement with HHS on Tuesday allowing it to resume sharing the performance data
