About The Survey

The OAS CAHPS Survey measures patients’ experiences with overall care received from Medicare-Certified Hospital Outpatient Departments (HOPDs) and Ambulatory Surgery Centers (ASCs).

Data collection and reporting is currently voluntary. Medicare-certified facilities may eventually be required to conduct the OAS CAHPS Survey as part of the Hospital Outpatient or ASC Quality Reporting Program.

The Importance of Conducting OAS CAHPS Now

SPH Analytics recommends that facilities begin piloting the survey prior to anticipated mandates to:

  • Know where you stand before mandatory reporting begins
  • Take action on identified issues to improve reporting results
  • Understand your patients’ perceptions and make changes to increase overall satisfaction
  • Familiarize your leadership and staff, as well as your patients, with survey protocols
  • Be ahead of your competition
