CAHPS® Clinician & Group Survey


The CAHPS Clinician & Group Survey (CG-CAHPS) assesses patients' experiences with health care providers and staff in doctor’s offices. Survey results can be used to:

  • Improve care provided by individual providers, sites of care, medical groups, or provider networks.
  • Equip consumers with information they can use to choose physicians and other health care providers, physician practices, or medical groups.

To ensure that survey results are comparable across users, every CAHPS Clinician & Group Survey starts with a set of “core” items that everyone uses. Users can then customize their survey by adding supplemental items. Browse supplemental items for the Clinician & Group Survey.
