          Abstract

          The Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HCAHPS) is a national survey of inpatient experience. This study evaluated the association of HCAHPS survey results and outcomes in gynecologic cancer surgery. This observational study used HCAHPS survey data from 2009–2011 to assign hospitals into score terciles. The Nationwide Inpatient Sample (NIS) database was used to identify admissions during the same time period for gynecologic cancer-specific surgeries. Data sources were linked at the hospital level. Postoperative complications, mortality, and prolonged length of stay were compared between higher and lower scoring hospitals. Complications were grouped as ‘surgical’, ‘medical’, or ‘care team’. Mixed effects models were used to evaluate the associations between hospitals’ HCAHPS scores and outcomes after adjustment for patient and hospital-level variables. 17,509 linked encounters in 651 hospitals across the U.S. were identified, with 51% uterine, 40% ovarian, and 9% cervical cancer surgical admissions. In-hospital mortality was lower in hospitals in the top HCAHPS score terciles compared to bottom HCAHPS score tercile (odds ratio (OR) 0.54, 95% CI: 0.31–0.94). Surgery in higher scoring HCAHPS hospitals was associated with less ‘surgical’ complications (OR 0.82, 95% CI 0.69–0.98). No association was found between ‘medical’, ‘care team’, overall complications, or prolonged hospitalization (p > 0.05) and HCAHPS scores. Gynecologic oncology surgeries performed in top HCAHPS tercile hospitals were associated with lower in-hospital mortality and surgical complications compared to surgeries performed in bottom tercile hospitals. Associations between HCAHPS scores and other adverse events were not seen.
