Michigan Medicine earns five-star rating from CMS for overall quality

May 12, 2021  //  FOUND IN: News

Congratulations to Michigan Medicine, which recently earned five stars from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) for overall hospital quality!

The overarching goal of the Overall Hospital Quality Star Rating is to improve the usability and interpretability of information posted on Care Compare, a website designed for consumers to use along with their health care provider to make decisions on where to receive care. In short, the rating provides consumers with a simple overall rating generated by combining multiple dimensions of quality into a single summary score.

The methodology utilizes ratings in such areas as mortality, safety of care, readmission, patient experience, and timely and effective care.
