the Ascom Report

Extending the Reach of Actionable Insights for Healthcare Leaders

A report for hospital leaders, focused on breaking down silos, integrating systems, orchestrating workflows, and enabling caregivers. The result? Increased patient satisfaction.

Hospitals that participate in the Value-Based Purchas­ing program are working hard to capture their share of the $1.9B incentive available in FY2019 – and to avoid performance penalties. As 25% of the Total Performance Score that drives these payments and penalties, HCAHPS has never been more relevant to the bottom line.

THE Report for Healthcare Leaders!

An Excerpt From Our First Report.

The HCAHPS star rating methodology results in high cutoffs for each star level and domain. For most HCAHPS domains, it takes a score of at least 85 out of 100 just to achieve a middle of the road, three-star rating. The table below shows the linear mean scores (i.e. the percentage results for each question converted to a score from zero to 100) required to achieve each star level for each domain.
