NEW YORK, NY, UNITED STATES, December 16, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Quality Reviews®, the leading patient engagement company that helps healthcare provider organizations improve patient and employee experience through real-time feedback, today announced a partnership with Arbor Associates, a leading CMS-certified CAHPS® survey firm, to give healthcare providers the ability to track real-time patient experience on a digital platform while also fulfilling their CMS-mandated Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HCAHPS) and other CAHPS survey requirements.

“We are delighted to work with Arbor Associates to provide both the power of real-time patient experience tracking and the ability to administer CMS-mandated HCAHPS surveys through a partnership that aims to help those healthcare provider organizations looking for alternatives to traditional CAHPS surveys,” said Edward Shin, MD, CEO and Co-founder of Quality Reviews®. “We look forward to bringing Arbor Associates’ portfolio of CAHPS solutions to health systems and hospitals focused on delivering an optimal patient experience,” he added.

As more health systems focus on the need for real-time, actionable patient feedback to enable service recovery and keep a finger on the pulse of patient sentiment, the Quality Reviews® – Arbor Associates partnership gives these forward-looking healthcare providers the ability to view and act on real-time feedback alongside their CAHPS data.
