Changes Are Coming
On Thursday, March 4th, 2016, CMS announced the implementation of six new quality measures that will be reported on Nursing Home Compare (NHC) beginning in April 2016. CMS also reports that five of these new quality measures will be used in the Nursing Home Five-Star Rating program beginning July 2016.
