The acquisition broadens the scope of SurveyVitals’ services to include CAHPS administration and other related consulting services.
Novaetus was founded in 2004 as a marketing and consulting company initially working with a small, select group of clients. Based in Novi, Michigan, the company quickly expanded, becoming one of only 37 vendors in the United States certified by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services to administer CAHPS surveys.
“Not only does Novaetus’s extensive experience with CAHPS and other federal programs enhance our client experience but, more importantly, our vision and values align,” said Bob Vosburgh, CEO of SurveyVitals. “Novaetus’s reputation for putting clients first blends nicely with our own. We look forward to further expanding our client solutions and challenging the status quo.”
Novaetus’s CAHPS certifications include Outpatient and Ambulatory Surgery CAHPS (OAS CAHPS), Physician Quality Reporting System CAHPS (CAHPS for PQRS), Home Health CAHPS (HHCAHPS), In-Center Hemodialysis CAHPS (ICH CAHPS), CAHPS Hospice Survey (Hospice CAHPS), and CAHPS Patient-Centered Medical Home (CAHPS PCMH).
“We are excited to be able to provide an amazing combination of surveys with a phenomenal company,” said founder and president of Novaetus Lori Moshier. “SurveyVitals’s impressive digital solution integrates perfectly with what we do at Novaetus. Together we will make a greater impact on patient care.”
Moshier joins SurveyVitals as CAHPS Program Director. She brings a wealth of industry knowledge and oversees day-to-day operations of CAHPS administration and other survey projects. Novaetus employees remain in their current roles and same organizational reporting structure.
