Notes The Overall Hospital Quality Star rating summarizes a variety of measures across 5 areas of quality into a single star rating for each hospital. Once reporting thresholds are met, a hospital’s overall star rating is calculated using only those measures for which data are available. The average is about 37 measures. Hospitals report data to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services through the Hospital Inpatient Quality Reporting (IQR) Program, Hospital Outpatient Quality Reporting (OQR) Program, Hospital Readmission Reduction Program (HRRP), Hospital-Acquired Condition (HAC) Reduction Program, and Hospital Value-Based Purchasing (VBP) Program. Overall star ratings aren’t calculated for Veterans Health Administration (VHA) or Department of Defense (DoD) hospitals.
The methodology uses a simple average of measure scores to calculate measure group scores and Z-score standardization to standardize measure group scores for these 5 measure groups: 1. Mortality 2. Safety of Care 3. Readmission 4. Patient Experience 5. Timely & Effective Care
After estimating the group score for each hospital and each group, CMS calculates a weighted average to combine the 5 group scores into a single hospital summary score. If a hospital is missing a measure category or group, the weights are redistributed proportionally amongst the qualifying measure categories or groups.
