This study highlights the key drivers that form particular patient impressions resulting in exemplary overall provider performance ratings across service lines in the ambulatory environment. Two national samples of CG-CAHPS data were analyzed. Results indicate variance of impact among all CG-CAHPS questions on "top-box" scores for overall rating of provider among specialties. Interestingly, the same 5 explanatory variables-provider listened carefully, provider spent enough time, provider showed respect, provider knew important information about medical history, and provider explained things clearly-had the greatest explanatory power across the primary and specialty care samples when analyzed via multiple logistic regression analysis.
