PPACA Hospital Reimbursements Impacted by HCAHPS Patient Satisfaction: RateHospitals.com Empowers Patients to Define Healthcare's Future
Date:8/26/2013

Washington, DC (PRWEB) August 26, 2013

With the implementation of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), hospital reimbursements will be significantly impacted by HCAHPS (Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems) scores. Patients can use RateHospitals.com to report and rate their hospital experiences, which will provide valuable feedback to future patients and hospitals. This feedback may help the public and hospitals to learn their strengths and weaknesses, ultimately leading to improvement in the delivery of quality healthcare to citizens of the United States, and an increase in patient satisfaction. Patient satisfaction will significantly define the future of healthcare in the United States.

Quality, pay for performance, and hospital value based purchasing (HVBP) are synonymous terms which are used to indicate that in the future, healthcare hospital reimbursements will be linked to patient outcomes. The first standard publicly reported survey of patients’ opinions of their hospital care is known as HCAHPS. This 27 item survey allowed for standardization of questions and comparisons of data.

According to cms.gov, in 2002, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) developed the HCAHPS survey. In May 2005, this survey was endorsed by the National Quality Forum, and was approved by the federal Office of Management and Budget in December 2005. CMS started using the HCAHPS survey in October, 2006, and the first public reporting of results began in March, 2008. In 2005, the Deficit Reduction Act created motivation for acute care hospitals
