For the second time, CSS has received approval from CMS to conduct CAHPS surveys for group practices participating in the Physician Quality Reporting System. This brings the number of survey certifications and approbals CSS currently holds to nine. Groups with more than 99 eligible professionals (EPs) must select a CAHPS vendor by September 20, 2016. Groups with 2-99 EPs may voluntarily participate in the survey. For more information or a price quote, please contact us.
Survey vendor training is complete, and for the fourth year in a row, CSS has earned re-approval as a vendor for the CAHPS for ACOs program. ACOs participating in the Pioneer ACO Model, Medicare Shared Savings Program, or the Next Generation (NextGen) ACO Model must contract with an approved vendor by September 20, 2016. Contact CSS to learn more about what we can do for your ACO.
