ICH CAHPS Survey Reporting Payment Year 2017-2020

$179 / year

This dataset lists In-Center Hemodialysis Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (ICH CAHPS) survey data used by End-Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) Quality Incentive Program (QIP) to assess dialysis facility performance. The CAHPS In-Center Hemodialysis survey is designed to measure the experiences of people receiving ICH care from Medicare-certified dialysis facilities.

Complexity

ICH CAHPS (In-Center Hemodialysis Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems) Survey is the first national, standardized, and publicly-reported survey of patients’ perspectives of dialysis care; it is also the first CAHPS survey focusing solely on a chronic disease. ICH CAHPS measures perceptions of patients with End-Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) receiving life-sustaining in-center hemodialysis care. In 2007, the National Quality Forum (NQF), an organization established to standardize health care quality measurement and reporting, formally endorsed measures from the ICH CAHPS. Beginning in calendar year 2014, the In-Center Hemodialysis CAHPS Survey, also referred to as the ICH CAHPS Survey, has been conducted for ICH facilities by survey vendors approved by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). The ICH-CAHPS Survey is a national, standardized survey of in-center hemodialysis patients about their experiences with the facility, facility doctors and staff, and care received.

Questions in the ICH CAHPS survey encompass: nephrologists’ communication and caring, staff communication and caring, operations of the dialysis facility, patient’s knowledge of treatment options, handling of patient problems, and global ratings. There are three approved modes of administration: mail only, telephone only, and mixed (mail followed by telephone). Although ESRD patients spend a number of hours each week at their dialysis facility, the survey may not be administered by any facility staff person and may not be administered in the dialysis facility to avoid any bias in responses. Therefore, beginning in 2014 dialysis facilities will authorize CMS-approved survey vendors to conduct the survey of eligible patients on their behalf.
