Update to Care Compare Website: Additional Doctor, Clinician Facility affiliation Information

Share this:

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) updated Medicare Care Compare to include doctor and clinician facility affiliation information for the following facility types, as applicable (noting this is in addition to the hospital affiliations previously available):

  • Long-term Care Hospitals (LTCHs)
  • Skilled Nursing Facilities (SNFs)
  • Inpatient Rehabilitation Facility (IRFs)
  • Home Health Agencies
  • Hospices
  • Dialysis Facilities

This update is especially helpful to patients and caregivers since it:

  • Provides additional information to support patients and caregivers as they make healthcare decisions.
  • Offers information about clinicians who aren’t affiliated with a hospital but work in other types of healthcare facilities.
  • Creates additional quality information linkages between clinicians and facilities across Care Compare pages.

The facility affiliations are displayed in a dedicated “Affiliations” section for easy access. Group affiliations will continue to be listed separately in the “Details” section as a fundamental part of a clinician’s profile.
