Ease of Reading
Consumer Experience is Key.
In recent years CMS has increased the importance of Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (CAHPS) measures, quadrupling (4x) the weighting to 32% of the Star Rating. As a result, consumer experience has become a key differentiator between high and low performers.
Simplifying your health plan materials and client communications is essential to improve your consumer experience, resulting in a better CAHPS score, and an increase in CMS star rating.
