NEW YORK, NY – 05/22/2017 (PRESS RELEASE JET) — Wyckoff Heights Medical Center announced today that it has launched RateMyHospital®, the real-time, mobile patient feedback and service recovery tool throughout its ambulatory care network. Leveraging the ubiquity of mobile devices, Wyckoff Heights now gives patients and their families the opportunity to share feedback within minutes to hours after the episode of care.
“Our patients are central to the care experience, and RateMyHospital gives us the ability to improve that experience in real-time. This technology has reinforced our commitment to giving our patients a real voice in their healthcare journey,” said Andrew Toga, Executive Vice President, Ambulatory and Physician Services at Wyckoff Heights Medical Center.
RateMyHospital gives healthcare organizations the ability to instantly receive feedback from patients within minutes after they receive care. This is made possible through the utilization of text messages and smartphone technology to create a dialogue between the hospital and their patients. After a text is sent, smartphone users simply press a link allowing them to provide valuable feedback to doctor administrators in real-time.
“We take the patient experience and the quality of care that we provide to our community very seriously. RateMyHospital is fast and easy, and gives us valuable data that we can use to identify any potential issues and have them addressed immediately, with the ultimate goal of providing the best possible care for our patients,” said Judy McLaughlin, Vice President, Ambulatory Care Services at Wyckoff Heights Medical Center. “Simple solutions like these can revolutionize the way we care for our patients,” she said.
