Press Ganey Annual Physicians' Office Pulse Report Released Today

SOUTH BEND, Ind., Oct. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- A new Press Ganey Associates, Inc. report released today confirms patients have heightened expectations of their health care experience and feel more empowered to choose where they receive care. Health care facilities must address satisfaction at all points of the patient experience to maintain and improve patient retention rates. The 2008 Physicians' Office Pulse Report: Patient Perspectives on American Health Care examines the experiences of more than 1.9 million patients treated at nearly 8,500 offices nationwide.

This annual report finds that patients are most dissatisfied during the 24 minute average wait time before seeing a physician. Specific low patient satisfaction areas include registration, wait times, and treatment before seeing a doctor.

The report also identifies the top five patient priorities:

Priority 1: Sensitivity to patients' needs

Priority 2: Overall cheerfulness of the practice

Priority 3: Overall rating of care received during the visit

Priority 4: Comfort and pleasantness of the exam room

Priority 5: Waiting time in exam room before being seen by the care
