CMS adds ratings to Dialysis Facility Compare website
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has added star ratings to its Dialysis Facility Compare (DFC) website and plans to update the ratings annually beginning in October.
The ratings summarize performance data in an effort to make it easier for consumers to use the information on the website. Facilities are rated on a scale of one to five based on information about the quality of care and services that a dialysis facility provides. DFC joins Nursing Home Compare and Physician Compare in the use of the star ratings their websites.
