Outpatient and Ambulatory Surgery CAHPS (OAS CAHPS) Survey results based on responses from patients who received an outpatient surgery or procedure between October and December 2019 and July 2020 and March 2021* (Q4, 2019, Q3-4, 2020 and Q1, 2021) are now publicly available on the Provider Data Catalog (PDC) website (formerly known as Data.Medicare.gov). The PDC website provides downloadable datasets (direct link: https://data.cms.gov/provider-data/). OAS CAHPS data are also referenced on Care Compare, which points to the downloadable datasets on the PDC website under "Resources & Information" (direct link: https://www.medicare.gov/care-compare/).
You can access OAS CAHPS Survey results at the facility, state and national levels.
As a reminder, OAS CAHPS Survey results are updated quarterly, as shown in Table 14.2 of the OAS CAHPS Survey Protocols and Guidelines Manual, Version 5.0, available here.
