Outpatient Service Facilities Face Increasing Competition - Patient Perceptions More Important Than Ever
Date:12/1/2008

Day of treatment -- Patients report lower overall satisfaction when they are treated on a Saturday

In addition, this report provides several solutions for improving the patient experience.

    -- Establish "service standards" to guide staff interaction with patients
    -- Equip the employees at the registration desk with the tools needed to
       provide timely, accurate information, including early notification of
       potential delays and typical turnaround time for test results
    -- Prepare staff with established responses to common patient questions
    -- Have registration employees perform quick rounds in the waiting room to
       make sure all patients have been registered

The 2008 Outpatient Pulse Report: Patient Perspectives on American Health Care is available at www.pressganey.com/galleries/default-file/2008_Outpatient_Pulse_Report.pdf. Commentary from Dr. Mylod is available upon request.
