  • Receive a Private Feedback Report in Excel comparing their own CAHPS survey results to relevant benchmarks (for example, by region, size, ownership, and specialty).
  • Gain access to a large and growing pool of standardized comparative data that can supplement the client averages available from survey vendors.
  • Contribute to a research database that is used to answer important questions related to assessing and improving the patient experience.
