Outpatient and Ambulatory Surgery CAHPS (OAS CAHPS) Survey results based on responses from patients who received an outpatient surgery or procedure between January 2017 and December 2017 are now publicly available in three locations:

  • on data.medicare.gov (by clicking on "Hospital Compare data" box [under "Explore & download data" header] and then searching the term "OAS CAHPS");
  • through Hospital Compare (direct link to OAS CAHPS data: https://www.medicare.gov/hospitalcompare/OASCAHPS-measures.html); and
  • via downloadable databases on data.medicare.gov.

You can access OAS CAHPS Survey results at the facility, state and national levels on any of the locations provided above.

As a reminder, OAS CAHPS Survey results are updated each calendar year quarter, as shown in Table 14.2 of the OAS CAHPS Survey Protocols and Guidelines Manual, Version 2.0, available here .

The Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) and the OAS CAHPS Survey Coordination Team have developed an informational document now available on this website. In this document, we describe how the data were analyzed and the patient-mix adjustment factors that were used to statistically adjust the results that are currently being publicly reported .

If you have any questions, please contact the Coordination Team via e-mail at oascahps@rti.org or call toll-free (866) 590-7468.
