The online ICH CAHPS Data Submission Tool and XML Schema Validation Tool have been updated starting with the 2022 Fall Survey data submission period. Both updated tools are available on the ICH CAHPS website and can be accessed by survey vendors logging in and navigating to the desired link under the “Data Submission” menu tab.

Vendors can now upload up to five XML data files at once in the Data Submission Tool. Additional submission tips and information can be found on the Data Resources webpage: Data Submission Resources (

The XML Schema Validation Tool has been migrated to a web-based platform that can be accessed via a new link in the “Data Submission” menu tab. As a reminder, the purpose of the XML Schema Validation Tool is to help survey vendors test their XML files developed for data submission.

The deadline for submitting data files from the 2022 Fall Survey to the Data Center is at 5:00 PM Eastern Time on Wednesday, January 25, 2023. Vendors are encouraged to submit their files as soon as possible to allow adequate time to correct any problems identified and re-submit the files before the deadline.

Please feel free to contact the ICH CAHPS Coordination Team via email at or call 1-866-245-8083 if you have any questions or need help with data submissions.
