The Personalized Hospital Performance Report Card allows users to review, customize, and compare hospitals across the United States. The calculator is based on an overall star rating system developed by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and allows users to create their own custom ratings based on the hospital performance areas most important to them. The performance areas include mortality, safety of care, readmissions, patient experience, timeliness of care, effectiveness of care, and efficient use of medical imaging. The calculator uses data from the December 2016 public release of the Hospital Compare database.
