New results from AHRQ’s 2014 CAHPS Health Plan Survey are now available at www.cahpsdatabase.ahrq.gov/
cahpsidb. Results are based on the voluntary submission of survey data to the CAHPS Database. The CAHPS Health Plan Survey asks enrollees about their recent experiences with their health plan services and their medical care. The survey measures topics such as how easily consumers got needed care, how often they received care in a timely manner, how often doctors communicated well with consumers, and how people rated their doctor, specialist, health plan, and health care. Users can access the results via an online reporting system, chartbook or research data files.
