Great webcast for learning more about the new CAHPS Hospital Survey – Child version (Child HCAHPS). In addition to learning more about the survey, this webcast features two hospitals that share their experiences using the survey. To answer the questions that I get asked about this most often: No, there is no CMS requirement (or plans for a requirement) for this survey, and No, there are no plans to add this to Hospital Compare at this time.
This Webcast introduced the new CAHPS Child Hospital Survey (Child HCAHPS). This survey assesses the experiences of pediatric patients and their parents or guardians with inpatient care. An overview of this new survey was provided, including its development by the Center of Excellence for Pediatric Quality Measurement at Boston Children’s Hospital and the experiences of two hospitals that field tested the survey.
