CMS Launches Public Reporting of CAHPS® Hospice Survey Results

Posted on Friday, February 23, 2018 5:56 PM

CMS has announced the initial publication of results from the CAHPS Hospice Survey, on Hospice Care.  The report is meant to help individuals make informed healthcare decisions for themselves and their families based on objective measures of quality.

Hospice Compare is a webtool found here.  It provides information to allow patients, families, caregivers and providers to compare the clinical quality of care as well as patient experiences.

 Survey results are published for all Medicare-certified hospices that had at least 30 completed surveys during the eight quarters from Quarter 2, 2015 (April 1, 2015) through Quarter 1, 2017(March 31, 2017). In addition to the survey results, the Hospice Compare site provides a variety of other data about the quality of hospice care, including the Hospice Item Set (HIS).
