Measurement Period: April 2014 - June 2017

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.
