The Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (CAHPS) program is a public/private initiative to develop standardized surveys of patients’ experiences with ambulatory and facility-level care in commercial and Medicaid plans. Surveys were developed with the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ). CAHPS data address areas such as patient ease of obtaining information from a health plan; timeliness of service; and speed and accuracy of claim processing.

CAHPS results offer an indication of how well health care organizations meet member expectations.
