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

help advance the field of primary care research.
