2019 Measure Reporting Year

Measurement Period: April 2015 - June 2018

Each year, hospital results for the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) hospital quality outcome and payment measures are publicly posted. This data visualization explores the entire spectrum of results, displaying overall hospital results and allowing customized comparisons among user-defined hospital profiles.

To begin exploring the data, please do the following:

  1. Select up to 6 measures (Hospital-wide readmission is selected by default).

  2. Create up to 4 hospital profiles (in addition to the default profile of all hospitals).

  3. Measure results for each measure and hospital profile are displayed on the graph below.

DATA NOTES

Only hospitals with at least 25 qualifying hospitalizations for a given measure are included in the visualization.

Beginning with the 2019 reporting year, the stroke readmission measure was removed from this data visualization because this measure is no longer reported in the Inpatient Quality Reporting Program (IQR). This measure’s results are still available in reporting years prior to 2019.
