Developed by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), the 5-Star Quality Rating System is designed to allow patients and consumers to compare and select Medicare plans based on an organization's quality metrics, thereby incentivizing care providers to improve their strategies towards population health. This presentation highlights the significance of the 5-Star program, as well as SCMG's own strategies for achieving a 5-Star rating.
