The Official Submitter must be an employee of the organization who is vested with the authority to submit responses and supporting documentation on behalf of the organization. The official submitter will be asked to attest to the fact that all of the responses submitted to this survey are true, complete, and accurate to the best of their knowledge. The official submitter may not be an intern, fellow, temporary employee, or consultant.
Because the Official Submitter is attesting to the fact that many policies, practices, and benefits have not changed, we strongly recommend that the Official Submitter be an executive from the hospital (or the parent healthcare system) or at a minimum at the director level or above.
Please note that the Official Submitter may be an existing contributor to the survey, but also may be someone who has not actively worked on the HEI 2022 survey and will just be reviewing the information and documentation in the survey and submitting it on behalf of the organization.
