Frequently asked questions
This is one of the most commonly asked questions across all CAHPS surveys in the last year. The answer depends on a number of factors including financial resources, timeline to deploy regulatory frameworks and risk tolerance, to name a few. We encourage every HOPD and ASC to determine these competencies for themselves, then consult with us to weigh the costs and benefits.
We’ve had the opportunity to work with many ASC’s and HOPD’s who are now participating in OAS CAHPS during the voluntary reporting phase. The biggest benefit is that they are positioning themselves for success by a) knowing where they score relative to other facilities. This is important to help them b) understand where improvements need to be made so that they c) don’t end up on the wrong end of the reimbursement model when CMS implements the pay-for-performance standard.
