The Home Health Quality of Patient Care Star Ratings Preview Reports and the Home Health Compare Provider Preview Reports are now available in the Provider CASPER folders. These reports contain data that will be publicly reported on the Home Health Compare website in January 2017. The deadline to submit a request to have the Quality of Patient Care star rating data suppressed is October 24, 2016. Please follow the directions laid out in the Quality of Patient Care star rating Preview Report to submit a suppression request.
The October 2016 refresh of the Home Health Compare website will occur on October 19, 2016. The data presented on HHC in October will match those presented in the preview reports that were uploaded to CASPER in July.
