Update on Version 2.0 of the Hospital SOPS

The AHRQ SOPS™ Hospital Survey was released in 2004. Based on user and stakeholder feedback, AHRQ developed and pilot tested a revised version of the Hospital SOPS Survey in 44 hospitals between March and May of 2017.

After reviewing results from the 2017 pilot test, AHRQ determined that further modifications were needed to ensure that the revised survey provided hospitals with information for meaningful improvement. In late 2019, a second pilot test was conducted in 25 hospitals. Hospital SOPS Version 2.0 is scheduled for release midyear in 2019. At this time, users should continue to administer the original SOPS Hospital Survey. Please subscribe to AHRQ's mailing list for SOPS or consult the AHRQ SOPS website for updates on Hospital SOPS Version 2.0's release.

Data submission for Versions 1.0 and 2.0 of thhe Hospital Survey will be open from June 1 to July 20, 2020.
