On November 10, 2016, the ICH CAHPS Coordination Team posted a document providing information about how survey results from the 2015 ICH CAHPS Spring and Fall Surveys, which are currently posted on the Dialysis Facility Compare (DFC) on the www.medicare.gov website, were adjusted for both data collection mode and for patient mix. That document has been revised to provide more detailed information about the adjustment factors, including an example of an adjustment for patient sex. The revised document is posted here.

Information presented in this document will allow ICH facilities to approximate the effect of patient mix adjustment on their ICH CAHPS Survey results that were posted on DFC in October 2016.

Please contact the ICH CAHPS Survey Coordination Team at 1–866–245–8083 or via e-mail at ichcahps@rti.org if you have any questions about patient mix adjustment.
