CMS Proposal Would Make Survey Reports Public

Within the most current Hospital Inpatient Prospective Payment System proposed rule from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), CMS recommended that all accrediting organizations post provider/supplier survey reports and plans of corrections (PoCs) from CMS-approved accreditation programs on their website—a move that would make survey reports and PoCs publicly available. The American Hospital Association and the American Society for Healthcare Engineering (ASHE) are strong advocates for transparency and remain committed to sharing meaningful, accurate hospital quality information with patients and the public. ASHE believes that this information should be presented in an understandable manner.

There are several concerns that ASHE would like to see CMS address before moving forward with this proposal, including the need to make survey reporting information easy to understand by the general public. ASHE encourages its members to consider the effect that publicly available accrediting organization surveys could have on their health care organizations. ASHE encourages members to submit comments for the proposed rule. The proposed rule is available online, and the portion regarding public survey reports is located in the final paragraphs of the proposed rule. Public comments are due by 5 p.m. Eastern Time on June 13.
