Process to Suppress OAS CAHPS Survey Data from Public Reporting during Voluntary Implementation

Oct 30

During voluntary implementation, CMS will allow participating hospital outpatient departments (HOPDs) and ambulatory surgery centers (ASCs) to have their data suppressed, that is, not displayed on data.medicare.gov.

For the January 2019 public reporting refresh (which includes data from Quarter 3, 2017 to Quarter 2, 2018), vendors must notify the OAS CAHPS Survey Coordination Team (via email at oascahps@rti.org) by November 15, 2018 of any CCNs that choose to exclude their data from public reporting. Please note that the deadline for suppression is earlier than the date by which the preview reports are posted on oascahps.org.

Prior to each refresh, the Coordination Team will announce the deadline for the next suppression deadline. The e-mail message to the Coordination Team should include the HOPD's or ASC's name and CMS Certification Number (CCN). Please contact the Coordination Team via e-mail at oascahps@rti.org or call toll-free (866) 590-7468, if you have any questions.
