    How does your health plan rate for 508 accessibility to member documents and information?

    Healthcare Member Communications | Merrill Connect®

    The Center for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) uses their Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers & Systems (CAHPS) to measure customer experience. CMS measures this using patient experience surveys that don’t ask or judge the quality of care, but focus instead on the experience, communication and understanding of the treatment and coordination of efforts. Try applying this same concept from a 508-accessibility perspective. Do your efforts focus on the value to the person with the disability?
