What CAHPS Surveys Do We Administer?

PRC provides custom research for achieving excellence. PRC wholly supports the various AHRQ CAHPS Surveys as valuable tools for healthcare organizations seeking to promote service consistency and ensuring that basic elements of the service experience are being performed throughout the enterprise. Focusing on consistent behaviors is one piece of a successful strategy to differentiate your organization and win the loyalty of your patients. 

We will listen to learn your research objectives and recommend a study design that will deliver what you seek.  We will create a survey instrument with the right mix of CAHPS and Loyalty measures so that the most valuable perceptions of your patients are gathered.  We will design a sampling strategy that provides you with sufficient data to perform analyses and monitor process improvement efforts at the various operating levels of your organization (nursing unit, practice location, agency division).  Most importantly, you will have real-time access to your results through our award-winning PRCEasyView.com® website, providing views of your data that will preview public reporting and help your staff quickly interpret the information and translate it to improved care for your patients.
