CAHPS Surveys and Guidance
CAHPS surveys ask patients to report on their experiences with a range of health care services at multiple levels of the delivery system. Several surveys ask about experiences with ambulatory care providers such as health plans, physicians' offices, and behavioral health plans, while others ask about experiences with care delivered in facilities such as hospitals, dialysis centers, and nursing homes.
