Process to Suppress OAS CAHPS Survey Data from Public Reporting for April 2019 Refresh

Jan 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 April 2019 public reporting refresh (which includes data from Quarter 4, 2017 to Quarter 3, 2018), vendors must notify the OAS CAHPS Survey Coordination Team (via email at oascahps@rti.org) by February 15, 2019 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.

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.
