This report summarizes reporting rates and performance among all U.S. Critical Access Hospitals (CAHs) on Hospital Compare inpatient and outpatient process of care and structural measures for April 2014 through March 2015 (Q2 2014-Q1 2015). The Hospital Compare data in this report include several measures that are also measures for the Medicare Beneficiary Quality Improvement Project (MBQIP). Although the majority of CAHs report data on these measures to both Hospital Compare and MBQIP, the data in this report may differ from MBQIP reports because some CAHs only report data to one of these programs.
The Flex Monitoring Team also produces state-specific reports on these same measures with more detailed results.
