Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (CAHPS®) Surveys
CAHPS surveys are an integral part of CMS' efforts to improve healthcare in the US. Some CAHPS surveys are used in Value-Based Purchasing (Pay for Performance) initiatives. These initiatives represent a change in the way CMS pays for services. Instead of only paying for the number of services provided, CMS also pays for providing high-quality services. The quality of services is measured clinically, administratively, and through the use of patient experience of care surveys. To learn more about CAHPS Surveys, visit the CMS CAHPS web page.
MLN Guided Pathways
The Medicare Learning Network (MLN) Guided Pathways (GPs) web page includes links to information to help various types of health care professionals gain knowledge from resources and products related to Medicare and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) website. The GPs curricula contain brief descriptions and links to many CMS resources. These products are designed to allow users to quickly and easily scan or search the resources, select topics of interest, and move directly to a specific section by using bookmarks or the Table of Contents.
