The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) will enhance and strengthen its oversight and quality transparency of Accrediting Organizations (AO) by increasing transparency for patients on the organizations’ performance. One of the three ways proposed is through the public posting of AO performance data. CMS will post new information on the CMS.Gov website, including: The latest quality-of-care deficiency findings following complaint surveys at facilities accredited by AOs; a list of providers determined by CMS to be out of compliance, with information included on the provider’s AO; and overall performance data for AOs themselves. To view AO performance data, visit: https://qcor.cms.gov/hosp_cop/HospitalCOPs.html.
