    Maine Coast Memorial Hospital Celebrates CMS Five-Star Rating

    01/03/2017

    In April of 2016, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) changed its quality rating system to be based on one through five stars. Maine Coast Memorial Hospital received a five-star rating for the most recent period of measures, which were released on December 20, 2016. Maine Coast Memorial Hospital was one of only 112 hospitals in the United States to earn a five-star overall hospital quality rating, and the only hospital in the state of Maine to reach this benchmark for the period.In 2015, CMS started providing star ratings to help consumers compare hospitals more easily. The rating is based on reported data around 64 quality measures from seven categories including safety of care, readmissions, and effectiveness of care. Because of the complexity involved in measuring quality for healthcare, the results can be complicated for consumers to understand, the five-star rating system summarizes the complex information already available (on the CMS public website) into a single measurement.All hospitals are constantly looking for ways to improve quality and safety, the CMS measures help hospitals target areas of focus to effectively improve care.
