Many of you have been aware of CMS’ interactive “Compare” sites for several years. There were separate sites for hospitals, nursing homes, physicians, etc.
CMS has consolidated all the separate “Compare” sites to a single resource, with a much more comprehensive and user friendly interface.
Just navigated it, and it’s really cool!
Remember that the Advisory Board makes data available on value-based purchasing hospital outcomes (including multi-year trends of their Pay for Performance results), as well as dollar amounts of bonuses or penalties for the various CMS VBP measures for all hospitals that are part of the P4P program.
That information can be accessed here è https://maps.advisory.com/D/P4P
For our EMS brethren, these two resources can be used to help determine opportunities in your local community for enhanced EMS/Healthcare partnerships to improve patient outcomes, enhance patient experience, and reduce health system utilization.
