HHCAHPS scores are reported publicly by CMS on Home Health Compare. Scores are updated quarterly to reflect your most recent four quarters of data.
Based on patients’ responses to the survey questions, a score is calculated for each survey category: three composite measures and two global rating measures.
The questions that comprise each measure are listed below. Click the hyperlinks to access content on how you can improve your publicly reported HHCAHPS scores.
