Type of Information Collection Request: New Collection; Title of Information Collection: National Implementation of the Hospital Consumer Assessment of Health Providers and Systems Survey (HCAHPS); Form No.: CMS–10102 (OMB# 0938-NEW); Use: The intent of the HCAHPS initiative is to provide a standardized survey instrument and data collection methodology for measuring patients’ perspectives on hospital care. While many hospitals collect information on patient satisfaction, there is no national standard for collecting or publicly reporting this information that would enable valid comparisons to be made across all hospitals. In order to make ‘‘apples to apples’’ comparisons to support consumer choice, it is necessary to introduce a standard measurement approach. HCAHPS can be viewed as a core set of questions that hospitals can combine with their customized items. Participation in HCAHPS is voluntary. Hospitals will begin using HCAHPS, also known as Hospital CAHPS or the CAHPS Hospital Survey, under the auspices of the Hospital Quality Alliance, a private/public partnership that includes hospital associations, consumer groups, payors and government agencies that share a common interest in reporting on hospital quality; Frequency: Monthly; Affected Public: Individuals or households; Number of Respondents: 2,852,000; Total Annual Responses: 2,852,000; Total Annual Hours: 285,200.
