New Care Coordination Survey from AHRQ

AHRQ has developed and pilot tested a new care coordination survey that is 
designed for use in research and evaluation in primary care settings. 
The Care Coordination Quality Measure for Primary Care 

(CCQM-PC) is a reliable and valid survey that builds on AHRQ’s previous work 
to define care coordination (Care Coordination Measures Atlas) and on new 
research. It addresses key care coordination activities, such as information sharing 
and creating and using care plans, from the patient perspective. The survey fills 
a critical measurement gap.

The CCQM-PC is intended for use in health services research and primary care 
improvement activities. It is not a CAHPS™ survey and is not designed to be used 
for reporting or accountability purposes.

The CCQM-PC is in the public domain. The full survey and guidance for its use in 
research are available here. AHRQ strongly encourages primary care researchers 
to use the CCQM-PC in studies of primary care transformation and would welcome 
additional research to further refine the survey for use in primary care quality 
improvement activities.

For more about AHRQ’s funding commitment to primary care research and to 
improving the patient care experience, including research on care coordination,

AHRQ’s National Center for Excellence in Primary Care Research was established to 
help advance the field of primary care research.
