What’s New for the 3.0 Version of the CAHPS Clinician & Group Survey?
The Agency for Healthcare Research & Quality (AHRQ) has recently updated the CAHPS Clinician & Group Survey (CG-CAHPS).
Updates to the Core Surveys
The CAHPS Clinician & Group Survey 3.0 includes updated core instruments for adult and child populations. Both instruments have fewer items than the previous version and include a new measure of care coordination.
The updated administration guidance includes a new protocol for using email to contact respondents.
Revisions to the Patient-Centered Medical Home Item SetThe 3.0 version of the optional Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) Item Set is now available for both the Adult and Child Surveys. Learn about this new version at https://cahps.ahrq.gov/surveys-guidance/item-sets/PCMH/about_pcmh-item-set-cg30-2314.pdf.
Ongoing Updates to Supplemental Survey Items 
The CAHPS Consortium is reviewing all supplemental items for CG-CAHPS to bring them into alignment with the 3.0 version of the survey. Groups of supplemental items will be released as soon as they are finalized.
Users of CG-CAHPS 3.0 may adapt supplemental items developed for the 2.0 version if needed. Please contact the CAHPS Help Line at cahps1@westat.com or 1-800-492-9261 for guidance.
