AHRQ--Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality: Advancing Excellence in Health Care

Cahps header logo

For 20 years, AHRQ’s CAHPS Consortium has served as the “R&D engine” for the CAHPS initiative, which has led to the development and use of patient experience of care surveys in over a dozen settings of care. Currently, CAHPS researchers are involved in a variety of studies to:
  • Identify ways to improve the usefulness and practicality of the surveys.
  • Develop better ways to provide consumers with useful information about patient experience and other aspects of health care quality.
  • Assess and support the use of CAHPS surveys to improve patient experience.
To keep CAHPS survey users, researchers, and others up-to-date on the work of the CAHPS Consortium, AHRQ has published the following summaries of ongoing research projects:
  • The Maintenance and Updating of CAHPS Survey Instruments ( PDF [ PDF file - 169.29 KB] )
