The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services will make the platform for downloading data from the Nursing Home Compare website Data.Medicare.Gov in July. At 1 p.m. (Eastern Time) Thursday, the agency will host a “Get Started!” webinar to give an introduction to Data.Medicare.Gov. The webinar is appropriate for both technical and non-technical users of the Compare website data, including administrators. Officials will demonstrate options for accessing data, and describe how to navigate the site and interact with the data.

Others current sites that will be a part of Data.Medicare.Gov are Dialysis Facility Compare, Home Health Compare and Hospital Compare.

Anyone unable to take part in the webinar can still view the video recording in the Help section of http://www.data.medicare.gov following the event. That is also the location for a variety of useful videos and resources, officials said.
