Abstract:

We assess health care quality and access in the Medicare system to inform consumer choice, foster quality improvement, monitor health plan quality, and reward high-performing plans. The CAHPS survey has since 1997 been one of the main tools for this assessment. In this talk, I will review some of the more interesting analyses of system quality made possible by using the CAHPS survey and some of the challenging issues in system monitoring overcoming years. I will then describe our analyses of an experiment on the effects of survey mode on CAHPS responses, using a principal stratification framework.
