ICH CAHPS Public Reporting

CMS began publicly reporting results of the ICH CAHPS Survey in October 2016, with star ratings added in 2018. ICH CAHPS Survey results are used by consumers to inform their decisions about choice of a dialysis facility (also known as an ICH facility or dialysis center), by dialysis facilities in their quality improvement initiatives, and by CMS to monitor the quality of ICH dialysis care provided to their ICH patients. Publicly reported results can be found on Care Compare on ( under the provider type “Dialysis Facilities.”
