Myth Busting: Using the CG-CAHPS 12-Month Survey for Quality Improvement
A free Webcast from the CAHPS® User Network
Date: October 8, 2013
Time: 1:00-2:00 pm ET
On October 8, the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality's CAHPS User Network will host a free Webcast about using different versions of the CAHPS Clinician & Group Surveys (CG-CAHPS) for quality improvement. CG-CAHPS includes a Visit version, which asks patients about care at their most recent visit, as well as a 12-Month version, which asks about experiences with care over the past year. This Webcast addresses the misperception that only the Visit Survey can support quality improvement initiatives and offers examples of how health care organizations are using the 12-Month Survey for this purpose.
During this 1-hour live event, you can learn:
- What are the differences between the 12-Month and Visit versions of the Clinician & Group Surveys?
- What is driving the growing interest in using the 12-Month Survey?
- How are health care organizations using the 12-Month Survey to support their quality improvement initiatives?
- Carla Zema, PhD, Consultant for the CAHPS User Network and Principal for Zema Consulting (Moderator).
