Medicare Health Outcomes Survey 2013 to 2015

$199 / year

Medicare HOS (Health Outcomes Survey) Public Use data files (PUFs) contain the majority of the survey items collected on the HOS instrument (excluding beneficiary identifying information) as well as selected additional administrative variables. PUFs are used for research purposes and to facilitate the dissemination of data collected by the Medicare HOS project for additional research, PUFs have been created for each cohort (combined baseline and two year follow up) of data.

Complexity

The Medicare HOS is the first patient-reported outcomes measure used in Medicare managed care. The goal of the Medicare HOS program is to gather valid and reliable clinically meaningful data that have many uses, such as for targeting quality improvement activities and resources; monitoring health plan performance and rewarding top-performing health plans; helping beneficiaries make informed healthcare choices; and advancing the science of functional health outcomes measurement. Managed care plans with Medicare Advantage (MA) contracts must participate.

Each spring a random sample of Medicare beneficiaries is drawn and surveyed from each participating Medicare Advantage Organization (MAO) that has a minimum of 500 enrollees (i.e., a survey is administered to a different baseline cohort, or group, each year). Two years later, the baseline respondents are surveyed again (i.e., follow up measurement). Cohort 1 was surveyed in 1998 and was resurveyed in 2000. Cohort 2 was surveyed in 1999 and was resurveyed in 2001, and so on. During the current HOS administration (2016 Round 19), Cohort 19 is surveyed and Cohort 17 is resurveyed using HOS 3.0. For data collection years 1998-2006, the MAO sample size was one thousand. Effective 2007, the MAO sample size was increased to twelve hundred.

The PUFs files have been constructed in accordance with current CMS (Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services) and Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) policies and other applicable statutes and laws. All identifying information has been excluded from the files, and demographic categories have been aggregated such that identification of any given individual is not possible.

Two distinct categories of PUFs have been generated:
1.Baseline PUFs contain the data collected during a given baseline survey administration.
2.Analytic PUFs contain the merged baseline and follow up files as well as supplemental variables.

– Research Identifiable File
The complete HOS 2013-2015 Cohort 16 Merged Baseline and Follow Up RIF contains all fields, including direct person identifiers, and records for all beneficiaries in the baseline and follow up samples. The scope and subject matter of studies requesting a RIF must assist CMS in monitoring, managing, and improving the Medicare and Medicaid program and the services provided to beneficiaries. Requests for a RIF must be reviewed by the CMS Privacy Board to ensure that beneficiaries’ privacy is protected and the need for identifiable data is justified. CMS must balance the potential risk to beneficiary confidentiality with the probable benefits gained from the completed research. Requestors must also demonstrate the expertise and experience to conduct and complete the proposed study using a RIF.

– Limited Data Set
The HOS 2013-2015 Cohort 16 Merged Baseline and Follow Up LDS contains all records as well as most of the fields in the complete RIF. The LDS includes plan identifiers and plan characteristics. It also contains protected beneficiary level health information such as date of birth; however, specific direct person identifiers are removed, as outlined in the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA). Removed fields include the Health Insurance Claim (HIC) number, social security number (SSN), CMS beneficiary link key, beneficiary name, phone number, mailing address, and name of the person who completed the 2013-2015 Cohort 16 Analytic Public Use File Data User’s Guide December 2016 Prepared by Health Services Advisory Group Page 2 survey. Despite these limitations, the LDS is adequate to address most research aims and is the file most often requested by researchers. Since the information is still potentially identifiable, it is subject to the provisions of the Privacy Act of 1974, although LDS requests do not require approval from the CMS Privacy Board. To qualify for an LDS, data requestors must show that their proposed use of the data meets the disclosure provisions for research purposes as defined in the HIPAA and Privacy Acts. The research purpose must relate to projects that could ultimately improve the care provided to Medicare and Medicaid patients and policies that govern their care.
