CHA Reminds Hospitals to Submit First Quarter 2016 HCAHPS Data by July 6

The deadline to submit first quarter Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HCAHPS) data to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is July 6. Inpatient prospective payment system (IPPS) hospitals participating in the Hospital Inpatient Quality Reporting program must submit HCAHPS data to receive their full annual payment update. Non-IPPS hospitals must submit HCAHPS data for their data to be published on CMS’ Hospital Compare website. The review and corrections period is July 7-13, during which hospitals and supply vendors may use the QualityNet Secure Portal to review and, if needed, resubmit corrected data. For general questions about HCAHPS data, please contact CMS at
