Participation in the survey will include completion of a short, self-administered facility questionnaire and electronic submission of Uniform Bill (UB)-04 data (administrative claims) to a secure site on a recurring basis.


Health Information Management professional staff members are eligible for free continuing education credits after completion of an on-line training about participating in NHCS.


“The National Hospital Care Survey (NHCS) is a new survey that will gather critical information on impor- tant issues facing our health care system from a wide variety of sources across hospital settings. Your par- ticipation in this survey is vital in order to gather the information needed to make our health care system even better and more safe than it is now. Thank you in advance for your participation.”
