9/10/2018 10:37 AM
Registration is now open for the two-part Introduction to the Outpatient
and Ambulatory Surgery CAHPS (OAS CAHPS) Survey webinar training, which
will take place on November 13 and 14, 2018.
Session I: November 13, 2018 from 1:00PM to 5:00PM Eastern Standard Time
Session II: November 14, 2018 from 1:00PM to 5:00PM Eastern Standard Time
Organizations wishing to become OAS CAHPS Survey approved vendors must have
(at a minimum) their designated OAS CAHPS Project Director register below
to attend both Session I and Session II. We
strongly advise that the vendor's sampling and data managers also attend.
If a vendor organization's subcontractor will conduct substantive work to
support the implementation of the OAS CAHPS Survey, that subcontractor is
strongly encouraged to attend training as well. For purposes of this
survey, "substantive work" is defined as follows:
ANY statistical function, including sample selection,
telephone survey data collection (i.e., if an approved vendor is
subcontracting telephone data collection activities),
mail or questionnaire receipt and processing, and
construction or submission of XML data files.
Staff from hospitals, ambulatory surgery centers, health care
organizations, and other organizations interested in the implementation of
the OAS CAHPS Survey may attend training as well.
Survey vendors who have already been approved to conduct the OAS CAHPS
Survey are not required to attend the Introductory Training.
However, approved survey vendors are required to attend the OAS CAHPS
Survey Update Training session, which will be held via webinar on Thursday,
November 15th, 2018.
To register, please complete the Training Registration Form.
In addition to attending the two-part Introduction Training session,
organizations interested in becoming approved OAS CAHPS Survey vendors must
also review the
Minimum Business Requirements
and complete the activities described in an announcement posted on 9/5/2018
