The Coordination Team is conducting a data submission practice period to allow OAS CAHPS Survey vendors an opportunity to test the XML programs and files that they develop. Vendors are encouraged to create test XML files and use the downloadable validation tool to ensure proper formatting of their files. Once this has been done, vendors are encouraged to perform test uploads to the OAS CAHPS Data Center. In order to correctly test XML data files, survey vendors must:

use CCNs for facilities that have authorized you to submit data on their behalf; and use actual SIDs that are included in the Sample File you downloaded for this survey period. Made up or dummy SIDs will not allow your test file to pass the data submission validation checks. The data submission practice period is open from June 17, 2016 through July 1, 2016. ALL test XML files uploaded during this practice period will be removed from the OAS CAHPS Data Center after July 1, 2016. Vendors will receive a notification...

This tool allows survey vendors to "pretest" their OAS CAHPS XML data files to determine if they will pass the validation steps, before actually uploading the file to the Data Center. This tool is available under the Data Submission tab on the Data Submission Resources page once the vendor is logged in.

Changes to Valid Ranges for 3 Variables on the Standard and DSRS XML File Layouts:



The following variables have been updated in both the Standard and DSRS XML file layouts and will be reflected in the next version of the Outpatient and Ambulatory Surgery CAHPS Survey Protocols and Guidelines Manual. The OAS CAHPS Survey Coordination Team will alert vendors...
