Pre-Submission Checklist

  1. Make sure you have a 16-digit security code. If you don’t, visit Get a Security Code to complete a Security Code Request Form.
  2. Download a hard copy of the survey and review supporting materials in Survey and CPOE Materials. Read through the entire survey document, which includes measure specifications, to ensure that you understand what information is required.
  3. Complete a hard copy of the survey before you log into the online survey tool. This will expedite the online survey tool completion and avoid the online survey tool "timing out" after 20 minutes of idle time (a security precaution). Once all of the information has been collected and recorded in the hard copy of the survey, the CEO or his/her designee can typically complete the survey online in less than 60 minutes from the hardcopy record. Responses can only be submitted using the online survey tool.
  4. Download and review a copy of the Quick Start Guide. This document includes important instructions on how to navigate the new online survey tool, including how to affirm and submit sections.
  5. Review survey submission deadlines
  6. Bookmark the Help Desk URL in case you have any questions about the survey, measure specifications, or deadlines:
