  • Five-Star Reports
    • The Five Star Analysis report explains the three components of the Five Star rating: inspections, staffing hours per resident day, and quality measures. The facility-specific reports are provided exclusively to LeadingAge PA members quarterly, and indicate where to focus improvement efforts in resident care to increase your rating. Please contact with any questions, or to request a report or on-site training. 
      The Five Star + Peer Review is a tool, updated monthly, which allows users to filter data not only to look at their own Five Star ratings, but also to complete a comparison against multiple peers in three simple steps! This peer-to-peer interactive resource enables members to create custom benchmarks within their county for marketing, nursing, operations, and hospital referrals. It easily prints your analyses for presentations and reporting purposes without needing to wait for the quarterly report!
