Now Available: New Version of CAHPS Clinician & Group Adult Survey
AHRQ has released version 3.0 of the Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems Clinician & Group (CG-CAHPS) Survey. Changes include a shortened survey reference period of six rather than 12 months and a new care coordination composite measure and revised composite measures for Access, Communication, and Patient-Centered Medical Home items. The Adult Survey 3.0 now has 31 total items rather than 34 as in version 2.0. Revisions reflect input from survey users and stakeholders, analyses of survey data and ongoing efforts to improve the consistency of this survey’s implementation across multiple stakeholders, including the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services.
