CAHPS Data Included in Hospice Compare Refresh

On Tuesday, February 20, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) posted results from the first CAHPS Hospice Survey for patients, their families, caregivers, referral sources and providers to have access to information related to choosing a hospice provider. Users will have the capability to choose up to three different hospices at one time for side-by-side comparison. To have their CAHPS data reported, they would have to have had at least 30 completed surveys during the eight quarters spanning Q2 2015-Q1, 2017.

The refresh also updates the Hospice Item Set (HIS) data from Q2 2016-Q1 2017. Hospices may review Hospice Compare by clicking here.
