Center For Medicare and Medicaid Services
The Center For Medicare and Medicaid Services [CMS] oversees a nation-wide, multi-faceted program of measurement of healthcare providers which includes reporting on Medical diagnoses, treatments and outcomes. In addition, these measurements are designed to improve the overall quality of healthcare provided to the patient by seeking input from actual patients on the quality of care they received from their providers.
Known as CAHPS [Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems], CMS closely monitors the collection of data as well as quality reporting to healthcare providers by certifying the CAHPS survey vendors through a rigorous process of background checks, annual site visits and close oversight of the CAHPS processes.
