The survey is the survey!  Lack of response is difficult to combat; however, agencies can affect the scores on the responses they receive.  Questions that impact the CAHPS Hospice Survey results are directly impacted by your clinicians’ influence on the patient.  Are your clinicians treating wounds or treating patients?  If your patients believe they are just another Medicare number, your CAHPS results will reflect that.  This session will address the questions that affect the measures and provide best practices to ensure each patient feels like a top priority.
