This assessment will require you to analyze a healthcare system’s survey data (Hospital Consumer
Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems, or HCAHPS) and develop a strategic plan for
improvement of organizational scores. The HCAHPS results posted on Hospital Compare, which is
part of the government’s Medicare website, allow consumers to make fair and objective comparisons
between hospitals and state and national averages on important measures related to the patient’s
unique perspective of the care received. You will need to incorporate the most recent survey scores
data analysis (including comparison scores/benchmarking), impact of scores (financial and quality),
organizational structure/design, use of technology, and influential cultural and social/environmental
factors into this project. You may select a method of presentation that involves either a media
presentation or a business plan document that will provide a thorough analysis, a plan that includes
stakeholder involvement, and a timeline for implementation, evaluation, and outcome measurement.
You are the newly appointed chief nursing officer of a hospital and have been tasked with improving
the most recently reported HCAHPS score for the entire organization. The hospital board is
requesting a detailed report, analysis, and plan to improve these results. You are instructed to
complete the full data and impact analysis; develop a detailed strategic plan to improve the scores in
all areas of the hospital, incorporating quality improvement, shared accountability, technology, care
delivery model, and financial stability; propose a rapid implementation timeline; and outline the
process of evaluation in an effective presentation that you will present at the next board meeting.

Your submission must be your original work. No more than a combined total of 30% of the
submission and no more than a 10% match to any one individual source can be directly quoted or
closely paraphrased from sources, even if cited correctly. An originality report is provided when you
submit your task that can be used as a guide.
Professional Communications is a required aspect to pass this task. Completion of a spell check and
grammar check prior to submitting your final work is strongly recommended.
