The CMS website Nursing Home Compare will take on a new look this spring! The new website “Medicare Care Compare” will standardize the eight different existing compare tools (hospitals, nursing homes, dialysis facilities, long-term care hospitals, inpatient rehabilitation facilities, physicians and hospice).
There will be a transition period where you can view new tools and the existing tools before they are archived. It’s not clear how–or if–this is a good thing, if it will impact our centers, or if we are just changing for the sake of changing… but time will tell. If you are interested in getting more information on the changes please go to www.CMS.gov_blog
