Data Review Website Will Be Refreshed on April 2nd & Letter Grade Preview Coming Soon

 

The data review website will be refreshed on April 2nd to reflect changes that occurred during the Courtesy Data Review Period (March 3-21). Hospitals can now log into the Data Review Website to view their source data and the finalized numerical safety score.

 

The finalized 2014 Scoring Methodology and supporting documents are available on the data review website as well. Letter Grades will be available for hospitals to preview on April 25th on or around 12 noon EST. The public announcement of the spring update to the Hospital Safety Score will take place the last week in April.     

 

Important Reminders:

1.  Final numerical safety scores reflect changes to means, standard deviations, and measure weights the occurred as a result of changes received during the Courtesy Data Review Period. All hospitals' numerical scores are likely to have changed slightly as a result of changes that occurred during the data review period. 

2. Hospitals that need a copy of their username and password are advised to submit requests to the Hospital Safety Score Help Desk as soon as possible. The Help Desk does anticipate high volume over the next several weeks. Submit your username and password request now to avoid delays. 

3. Hospitals are advised to visit  www.HospitalSafetyScore.org today to print a copy of their letter grade and source data from October 2013 for their records and information. October 2013 Safety Scores and Source Data will not be accessible after the April 2014 update.
