Patient experience of care (Leapfrog Group)

The descriptions for this measure come from source: www.leapfroggroup.org.
 
“Patients should consider choosing a hospital where other patients have reported a positive patient experience.”
 
The Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HCAHPS) survey, http://www.cms.gov/Medicare/Quality-Initiatives-Patient-Assessment-Instruments/HospitalQualityInits/HospitalHCAHPS.html, gives patients the opportunity to report on their experience in a hospital.

About this measure

The Leapfrog Group scores Patient Experience using data on the HCAHPS composite measure. This measure includes patient responses to questions about pain control, communication involving medication and whether or not patients were given information about what to do during their recovery at home.  Scores are reported as:

1 = Willing to Report
2 = Some Progress
3 = Substantial Progress
4 = Fully Meets Standards
 

Note: In this case, a higher number is better.
