The CMS is the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services. If what you want is a layperson's personal opinion, then I would think that posting the names of the all-round best electronic health record systems would be a benefit to Medicare and Medicaid providers, thus, yes, it would be a good idea.

If you want an opinion based on governmental and business concerns, I would think that such a posting on the website of such an entity would violate the government mandate to show bias of preference for business entities in the private sector, thus, from this perspective, no, it would not be a good idea.

There is a decide conflict of interest between private sector interests and government impartiality mandate.
