Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems Hospital Survey - Child Version (Child HCAHPS) is a survey to measure parent or guardian reports of their family’s experience of their child’s inpatient care. It was developed to be used nationally by payers (public and private), providers and consumers for public reporting, quality management and tracking purposes. The Agency for Health Care Research and Quality (AHRQ) released a final Child HCAHPS survey in October 2014, which includes 62 questions that cover 18 measures of the patient experience. At this time the Child HCAHPS initiative is not required by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), however Press Ganey anticipates they will encourage states to collect Child HCAHPS data.
