experience Goals data actionable?

Physician bedside manner. Facility cleanliness. Nurse response time.

These are just a few of the factors that influence how patients feel about their healthcare experience. If a patient has an issue, you’ll likely hear about it. But will it be too late?

Medicare now considers patient satisfaction scores when calculating its value-based purchasing program’s potential 2 percent penalty or reward. Yet, healthcare administrators and chief patient experience officers (CXOs) often learn about patient complaints too late in the game to protect a facility’s online reputation and bottom line.

Unmet survey needs, in order

Staying on top of patient service issues is challenging, even with a well-equipped patient experience team. And while most healthcare organizations use traditional paper surveys to track and monitor patient satisfaction metrics, today’s healthcare administrators and CXOs need real-time insights that are tied to patient experience goals. We can help. Quality Reviews® offers innovative service recovery tools that produce actionable data and insights that enable real-time adjustments.
