Health Center Patient Survey

The Health Center Patient Survey (HCPS) provides valuable data about patients’ experiences with the comprehensive care services they receive at HRSA-funded health centers. The HCPS is a sample-based survey conducted through one-on-one interviews designed to be nationally representative of the Health Center Program patient population. HCPS data assist HRSA, health centers, and other Health Center Program stakeholders in better understanding patients’ experience and satisfaction with care receipt, health care needs, factors that contribute to care access and the extent to which the Health Center Program meets those needs. The most recent survey was conducted in 2022, preceded by the 2014 survey.
