Creating the Patient Experience
Thursday, April 2, 11:30 am–12:30 pm
Consumers of health care are making more direct care decisions than ever before! As a result, the patient experience must extend beyond the exam room, tethering patients to a system of health in a meaningful way. As value-based reimbursement and regulations change relative to the perception of care, providers must respond with greater transparency and customer focus.
Most physician groups and health systems underperform in delivering on the patient experience and maximizing provider engagement. Optimizing the patient experience results in better care, reduced costs, and increased loyalty. This is accomplished through elevating the patient experience, starting with an environmental assessment of the entire episode of care, comparing that assessment to organizational goals, and implementing meaningful interventions for our customers.
This presentation will explore the hard facts about patient experience, why it matters, and how providers can get intentional about crafting exceptional patient experiences while enhancing provider engagement by looking through the lens of the health-care consumer.
