HHCAHPS Preview Reports with Star Ratings Available

Preview Reports reflecting the latest results from the Home Health Care Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HHCAHPS) Survey are now available here. The results are from January 2018 through December 2018 (quarter 1 to 4).

Providers must log into the website to view their report. This same data will be updated on Home Health Compare (HHC) on Medicare.gov this month. The Preview Reports present the publicly reported results with star ratings for those agencies with a sufficient number of completed interviews (40 or more patient surveys) to receive star ratings.

To access your agency’s HHCAHPS Preview Report, log into the HHCAHPS website using your username and password. Select the “Preview Reports” link under the “For HHAs” tab.

Questions about the HHCAHPS star ratings or your HHCAHPS Preview Report can be directed to the HHCAHPS Survey Coordination Team at hhcahps@rti.org or 866-354-0985.
