Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HCAHPS) are assesment surveys given to patients about their experience at a specific hospital.  The questionnaire measures the patient’s experience, perceptions and level of satisfaction during their hospital stay. It’s extremely important for hospitals to maintain high HCAHPS scores as it pertains directly to the patient experience.
