Dec. 15, 2017: N.J. Hospice Providers Perform Well on Update to Hospice Compare

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services updated Hospice Compare which uses data from the Hospice Item Set to provide consumers with information on measures related to patient preferences and managing pain and treating symptoms.

The refreshed data was collected between Jan. 1 and Dec. 31, 2016.

Hospice providers licensed by the N.J. Department of Health perform very well on these measures in general and outperform the nation on average on every measure.
