The Mount Sinai Medical Center Launches Real-Time Patient-Feedback Survey Tool
Date:7/31/2013

New York, NY (PRWEB) July 31, 2013

In an effort to better assess patient satisfaction, The Mount Sinai Medical Center has launched a real-time patient-feedback survey tool—RateMyHospital®—for cancer patients receiving treatment in the Derald H. Ruttenberg Treatment Center. The tool went live on Monday, July 15, and so far, scores of patients have been providing feedback in real-time.

So far, the response has been outstanding. We get several-fold more responses than seen with traditional paper-based mail surveys.”

Patients answer twelve questions with a 5-star rating system, with 5 being the best value. Questions inquire about the patient’s ability to get an appointment, office wait times, physician or office staff availability by phone, and cleanliness of the facility.

Mount Sinai is planning to roll out RateMyHospital in all clinical areas in the future. “This is just one tool to help establish a direct line to patients in our community in our ongoing efforts to provide exceptional medical care,” said Dr. Holcombe. "Importantly, this tool is simple and easy for patients to use and it provides us with immediate fe
