Do you understand the Five-Star Quality Rating System?
CMS created the Five-Star Quality Rating System to help consumers, their families, and caregivers compare nursing homes more easily and to help identify areas about which you may want to ask questions.
We talk with Samuel Stolpe, PharmD who is the Director, Quality Initiatives for the Pharmacy Quality Alliance (PQA, Inc.). In this role he leads PQA's effort in capturing the voice of the patient in PQA's measure development process through the Patient Advisory Panel. He also is responsible for the launch of the Adult Immunization Task Force as well as research and demonstration projects which show the value of PQA’s performance measure set.
