Overview: Patient satisfaction is an important and commonly used factor for measuring the quality in health care. Patient satisfaction affects clinical outcomes, patient retention, and medical malpractice claims. It affects the timely, efficient, and patient-centered delivery of quality health care.
This webinar will take a look at the direct correlation between employee engagement and patient satisfaction. Offer suggestions on how your organization can strive to do both by bridging the gaps to increase patient satisfaction scores and employee retention.
The first step in this process is understanding what is important to patients and your staff. Learn how to implement a process that will benefit both your patients and staff, share these results with your team, train and monitor the new process for areas of success and areas for improvement until you reach the desired results for your organization.
Why should you Attend: HCAHPS scores indicate the level of service provided by an organization, contribute to its reputation, and have reimbursement implications for providers.
A study by Compdata Surveys of 11,000 healthcare employers with more than 11 million employees found the average turnover in healthcare jobs in 2017 was 20.6%, up from 15.6% in 2010, putting healthcare’s turnover second only to hospitality’s.
Patients naturally want to share their experiences. On average, satisfied patients tell about their positive experience to five other people. In contrast, dissatisfied patients will complain to 9 or more other individuals. The positive and negative aspects of patient satisfaction and recommending your organization extend to social media and review sites.
