Version 3

    The CAHPS (pronounced “caps”) Hospice Survey was designed to measure and assess the experiences of decedents who died while receiving hospice care, as well as the experiences of their caregivers. CMS says the survey aims to produce comparable data on decedents’/caregivers’ perspectives of care that allow objective and meaningful comparisons between hospices on domains that are important to consumers, and create incentives for hospices to improve their quality of care. HealthStream has been approved by CMS to administer the survey since national implementation in 2015.
