Benchmark Healthcare Quality of Service with CAHPS Surveys.

Is your dental, healthcare, or insurance practice delivering great patient and customer care? How do you know? How do your patients and clients evaluate your practice? And how do you put that feedback into meaningful perspective?

What is CAHPS? The Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (CAHPS®) surveys give you a way to assess and benchmark your practice or plan against others in your industry, both regionally and nationally in the U.S. A multi-year initiative of the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), CAHPS produces standard surveys of patients’ experiences and supports the use of the survey results for public reporting and quality improvement.

As a medical or dental healthcare or insurance provider, you can use the H-CAHPS (Hospital CAHPS) or CAHPS Questionnaire to gather feedback regularly from your patients and clients—after each office visit or hospital stay or every 12 months, for example. Comparing your results with the aggregated data for providers in your region and across the nation can then help you focus your efforts on continuous improvement of patient or customer care.

How to Use the CAHPS Surveys

CAHPS survey questions capture patients’ and customers’ reports and ratings of their experiences with health care services. The questionnaires are designed to be used when:

  • Consumers and patients are the best and/or only source of information. CAHPS surveys do not attempt to collect information that can be gathered more effectively through other means (e.g., through medical records or from physicians).
  • Consumers and patients have identified such surveys as being important. The CAHPS program devotes substantial resources to identifying and confirming the issues that matter to consumers and influence their healthcare decisions.

In those cases where patients might hesitate to provide you with direct feedback, the CAHPS questionnaires give them the chance to do so indirectly yet constructively. Regular patient or customer feedback, aggregated with the feedback about other providers in your region, gives you an invaluable tool for benchmarking your quality of patient care and customer service over time.

Here are a few ideas for using the CAHPS surveys in your organization.

  • Continuous improvement. Encourage your patients to tell you about their visit and the quality of their experience with you, your support staff, and your facility. Use this patient feedback for continuous improvement in the areas of patient interaction, front office reception, back office administration, and nursing or other staff support.
  • Patient or customer satisfaction programs. Measure your progress against long-term patient or client satisfaction goals. Assess your patient or customer satisfaction improvement programs: for example, whether you’re reaching your annual targets in a multi-year journey.
  • Staffing or training investments. Determine where you should focus training or hiring, based on your patients’ or customers’ experiences. For example, while your patient may rate their experience with you, their physician, very highly, there may be opportunities for improving their experience with the clinic’s scheduling team.
