Notes on Methodology

This measure comes from the annual Adult Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers & Systems (CAHPS) survey, which is a questionnaire developed jointly by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) and the National Committee for Quality Assurance.

The survey draws as potential respondents the adult members of Vermont Medicaid who were continuously enrolled in the plan for at least 6 months, with no more than one enrollment gap of 45 days or less. From this sample frame, a random sample of 1,650 cases is drawn. 

Story Behind the Curve

This measure displays the percentage of adult Medicaid beneficiaries who answered "usually" or "always" when asked about their perception of whether their personal doctor is up-to-date about the care he/she has received from other doctors or health providers.

Vermont Medicaid's performance on this measure stayed the same at 80% from 2014 - 2017. With the many healthcare reform efforts underway in Vermont, like patient-centered medical homes, community health teams and value based payment models, we hoped to see our performance on this measure improve, which it did in 2018 (by eight percentage points) and has since leveled off around 85%.
