What survey meets CMS’ participation requirements for the 2014 Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS)?

CMS will use the CAHPS for PQRS survey to measure patient experience with group practices participating in the group practice reporting option (GPRO), referred to as PQRS group practices. The survey contains the core CG-CAHPS questions, plus additional questions to meet the requirements of the PQRS program and CMS’ information needs. The CMS-certified survey vendor reporting mechanism is available to all PQRS group practices to supplement their PQRS reporting with the CAHPS for PQRS survey. The CAHPS for PQRS survey measures patient experience and care within a group practice. The data collected on these surveys will be submitted on behalf of the group practice by the CMS-certified survey vendor.
