Long-Term Care Hospital Compare datasets

These are the official datasets used on the Medicare.gov Long-Term Care Hospital Compare Website provided by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services.  These data allow you to compare the quality of care provided by over 420 Medicare-certified long-term care hospitals across the nation.

Long-Term Care Hospital Compare data was last updated on Dec 12, 2018.

Announcements:

  • September 2018 update: the following 5 new quality measures have been added to LTCH Compare:
    • Percent of LTCH Patients With an Admission and Discharge Functional Assessment and a Care Plan That Addresses Function
    • Application of Percent of LTCH Patients With an Admission and Discharge Functional Assessment and a Care Plan That Addresses Function
    • Application of Percent of Residents Experiencing One or More Falls with Major InjuryMedicare Spending Per Beneficiary-PAC LTCH QRP
    • Discharge to Community-PAC LTCH QRP
  • CMS has decided not to publish a 6th quality measure, Potentially Preventable 30-Day Post-Discharge Readmissions, at this time. Additional time would allow for more testing to determine if there are modifications that may be needed both to the measure and to the method for displaying the measure. The additional testing will ensure that the future publicly reported measure is thoroughly evaluated so that Compare users can depend upon an accurate picture of provider quality. While we conduct this additional testing, CMS will not post reportable data for this measure, including each LTCH's performance, as well as the national rate. For more information visit the CMS LTCH QRP Public Reporting website.
