Generate CAHPS Reporting Data

To generate the report, navigate to the Report Center under the Reports tab. In the Patient Reports section, select CAHPS Reporting Data, or click on Learn More to see a description, parameters and what data is included in the report.

At the top of the report screen, users can filter the data by branch, sample year, sample month, primary payer and column details.

By default, the filters are set to show deceased patients and their associated CAHPS data points for the previous month for all branches and payers. The Column Details filter enables users to see numeric values for each field (default) or numeric values and descriptions of each value. Most CAHPS vendors require numeric values only.

Information from patients’ charts is used to populate the report. If information needs to be updated for a patient, click the patient’s first or last name in the report to open the patient’s chart and make the necessary updates.

Caregiver information in the report populates from the Authorized Contacts tab in the patient’s chart. The report displays contact information for the person selected to receive the CAHPS survey. If no contact has been selected to receive the CAHPS survey, the patient’s primary contact will be used, and they will be marked to be excluded from CAHPS surveying.

Several columns in the report can be sorted by clicking the column headers. These columns are labeled with up/down arrows.
