Expected Changes to OAS CAHPS Composite Measures (for Publicly Reported data) Started in July 2018

Jun 29

The OAS CAHPS Survey results for participating hospital outpatient departments (HOPDs) and ambulatory surgery centers (ASCs) will be refreshed in July 2018 on data.medicare.gov. OAS CAHPS Survey results will include data from patients who had an outpatient surgery or procedure between January 2017 and December 2017.

While the Centers for Medicare & Medicare Services (CMS) reviews the data included in the third composite measure (Preparations for Discharge and Recovery), this composite will be excluded from the publicly reported data. However, the "Preparations for Discharge and Recovery" composite measure will remain in the OAS CAHPS Survey Preview Reports, available to participating facilities on https://oascahps.org/. Below are the OAS CAHPS publicly reported measures, for quick reference.

Composite Measures

  1. About Facilities and Staff (Q3, Q4, Q5, Q6, Q7, and Q8)
  2. Communications About Your Procedure (Q1, Q2, Q9, Q10/Q11, and Q10/Q12)
  3. Preparations for Discharge and Recovery (Q13, Q14, Q15/Q16, Q17/Q18, Q19/Q20, and Q21/Q22)

Global Items

  1. Overall rating of facility (Q23)
  2. Patient willingness to recommend HOPD or ASC to family or friends (Q24)
