Hospitals Must Submit Fourth Quarter 2016 HCAHPS Survey Data by April 5

CHA reminds hospitals that Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HCAHPS) survey data for fourth quarter 2016 discharges (Oct. 1 – Dec. 31, 2016) must be submitted by April 5. Data should be submitted at least two days prior to the deadline to allow time to address any submission issues. Immediately following the submission deadline, participating hospitals will have a seven-day period to access and review the HCAHPS Data Review and Correction Report, which summarizes the data accepted for the quarter. During this period, hospitals may correct any errors in data submitted prior to the April 5 deadline; no new data will be accepted. For more information, visit
