The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) announced that it will delay updating the Overall Hospital Quality Star Ratings on the Care Compare website from April until July 2022 so it can correct a calculation error in the calendar year 2021 results for the OP-10 outpatient imaging efficiency measure.
No additional data or other actions from hospitals are required to recalculate the OP-10 measure, and that it does not expect the recalculation to impact CY 2022 payment determinations. Hospitals will be able to preview the updated overall star ratings and OP-10 measure results this spring in their facility-specific reports, according to CMS.
CMS is also delaying the public reporting of 2022 OP-10 measure results alongside the star ratings to minimize stakeholder confusion.
