The CAHPS Databases are AHRQ’s repositories for data from selected CAHPS surveys of patient experience with care. The purpose of the CAHPS Databases is to facilitate comparisons of CAHPS survey results by survey users and researchers. The CAHPS Databases currently include data from the CAHPS Health Plan Survey and the CAHPS Clinician & Group Survey.
The CAHPS Health Plan Survey Database contains results for the Medicaid Survey submitted by various sponsors, including public employers, State Medicaid agencies, State Children’s Health Insurance Programs (CHIP), and individual health plans, as well as Medicare Survey results provided by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services. This database has been operational since 1998.
The CAHPS Clinician & Group Survey (CG-CAHPS) Database contains results for multiple versions of the survey submitted by various sponsors, including practice sites, medical groups, and regional health collaboratives. The database began operating in 2010.
Note: In 2021, AHRQ suspended new data submissions for the Clinician & Group Survey Database due to a decline in participation.
