CMS to compare cost, quality of health services provided

CMS plans to create a database that compares the quality and price of health care services for Medicare beneficiaries, reports Health Data Management.

The Performance Measurement and Reporting System will be designed to offer physician-level performance results via a Web site and other methods of data dissemination. CMS will analyze deidentified Medicare claims to determine performance, as well as rely on existing public performance data from provider organizations.
