CMS to Combine Eight Provider Performance Reporting Tools on Medicare.gov

Modern Healthcare writes of CMS’ announcement of the plan to combine the eight online tools designed for Medicare beneficiaries and their caregivers on Medicare.gov to make healthcare choices later this year.

Currently, patients and families use different interfaces on the Medicare.gov website based on the care setting they are interested in – hospitals, nursing homes, home health, dialysis centers, long-term care hospitals, inpatient rehabilitation, physicians and hospice groups.

CMS will be reaching out to stakeholders, including patients and providers, in the coming weeks to get their feedback on the changes to the website before it launches one tool called “Medicare Care Compare”

In addition to the changes to Medicare.gov, the CMS announced it’s working on developing a new online portal to access CMS data – Provider Data Catalog for researchers and stakeholders who need to access more detailed data.
