Time to Review Your Data.

HHCAHPS Survey Preview Reports Now Available! HEALTHCAREfirst would like to announce that updated Home Health Care CAHPS (HHCAHPS) Survey Preview reports are now available for Medicare-certified home health agencies (HHAs).

Review your data now as it will be published on the Home Health Compare website (www.medicare.gov) sometime on or after July 19, 2012. The updated results are based on data collected from patients who received skilled home health care at some point between January 1, 2011, and December 31, 2011.

To access your agency’s Preview Report, log into the HHCAHPS Website using your username and password. Select the “Preview Reports” link under the “For HHAs” tab. The system will then display the HHCAHPS survey results.

HHAs using HEALTHCAREfirst can use the HHCAHPS data export feature and reporting tools to generate and review submission files prior to sending them to their HHCAHPS vendor. HEALTHCAREfirst’s approved HHCAHPS vendor list can be accessed on our website.

Additional information about the Preview Reports can be located here.
