HCAHPS (Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems) is a standardized government survey instrument and data collection methodology for measuring patients’ perspectives of hospital care. One of the valuable benefits of the HCAHPS survey program is the ability to compare each hospital against a true national database. The current release includes data from 4,063 hospitals and represents that largest database in the healthcare industry from comparative purposes. The database includes every acute care hospital and all critical access hospitals that voluntarily participate in the HCAHPS program.
The information in a HCAHPS Impact Report is personalized to each hospital even though it is derived from HCAHPS survey data collected from 4,063 hospitals from January 2013 through December 2013 nationally. Released by CMS on December 18, 2014, the data used in this report has been adjusted by CMS for patient mix and mode of data collection. Access to this database and additional details about the HCAHPS program can be found at www.hospitalcompare.hhs.gov.
