Comparative Data

The CAHPS Database Online Reporting System is a Web-based platform for viewing results from the Health Plan Survey and the Clinician & Group Survey (CG-CAHPS). The reporting system presents results for composite measures, rating measures, and individual survey items, organized according to survey version and field period. Displays include:

  • "Top Box" Scores
  • Bar charts
  • Trending (Health Plan only)
  • Chartbook
  • Percentiles
  • Report Builder

Participation in the CAHPS Database is free and open to all survey users on a voluntary basis. Organizations that contribute data receive a Private Feedback Report in Excel that displays their own results compared to the overall average. Contributors also have access to technical assistance through the CAHPS User Network.
