VA Quality Information on Care Compare

VA data for some quality measures are also found on the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Care Compare website. Care Compare helps people make decisions about where to get health care and encourages hospitals and healthcare providers to improve their quality of care.
Public transparency is not new for VA. Care Compare first started reporting data for VA medical centers in 2010 and this process is ongoing. VA and CMS collaborate closely on information shared on Care Compare so VA can be as open as possible with Veterans and the public about VA’s quality performance across many areas.
Information from Access to Care and Care Compare provide a comprehensive view of VA’s quality performance.
