Five-Star Ratings

Maximize your Five-Star Ratings using NexulHealth’s powerful platform and data-driven solutions

Consumers, payers (such as Medicare Advantage) and provider networks are increasingly scrutinizing operators' Five-Star Ratings and Nursing Home Compare profiles to make referral recommendations. Get back into the driver seat to ensure that you are a trusted source of post-acute and long-term care. 

Our services and products empower nursing homes to analyze their own data and maximize their star ratings in each of the 4 domains included in the Five-Star Quality Rating System on the Nursing Home Compare website:

“What Gets Measured Gets Managed” - Peter Drucker, Renowned Management Authority

  1. Quality Measures – updated quarterly

  2. Staffing – updated quarterly*

  3. Health Inspection – updated monthly*

  4. Overall – Based on the three domains

NexulHealth customers no longer experience surprise decreases in their star ratings and have instead advanced to active drivers of their ratings and QAPI program.

* NexulHealth's analytics products can simulate your anticipated ratings when the new health inspection data is used in the Five-Star calculation.

The health inspection ratings are to be held constant from February 2018 to February 2019 to all allow for sufficient deficiency data to accumulate based on new CMS regulations. During this time, the health inspection rating will be based on results from the two standard surveys that occurred prior to November 28, 2017 and all complaint deficiencies from the two prior calendar years.
