CMS Unveils Consumer Websites for Comparing Rehab Facilities, LTC Hospitals

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services has unveiled two new websites for consumers that include information about the quality of inpatient rehabilitation facilities and long-term care hospitals.
Under federal law, these health care organizations are required to report quality data to CMS on various quality measures and health outcomes, such as regarding pressure ulcers or readmissions.
CMS says the websites will be optimized for mobile use. The sites are available online at medicare.gov/inpatientrehabilitationfacilitycompare and medicare.gov/longtermcarehospitalcompare.
