The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has launched a redesigned website to provide consumers access to information on health care providers, including performance on quality and resource use measures.  

Care Compare combines eight existing CMS Compare tools and serves as a single point of entry for information about multiple levels of care including doctors, hospitals, skilled-nursing facilities, inpatient rehabilitation facilities, long-term care hospitals, home health agencies, hospices, and dialysis providers.   

The new website also includes links to additional information and consumer resources. During a transition period, consumers and other stakeholders will be able to use the original eight compare tools while CMS continues to gather feedback and considers additional improvements.
