Patient Driven Success Factors

An important component of being able to achieve consistently high patient experience ratings is the feedback we receive from patients and family members.

We make a conscious effort to integrate their perspectives to ensure we deliver patient-centered care every time, every touch.

We host monthly Patient and Family Advisory Council meetings where a group of former patients and family members provide feedback to our administrative, nursing, patient safety and patient experience leadership.

There is also a data-driven continuous monitoring process for quality indicators and patient safety metrics. We examine our internal data and use national registries to provide benchmark comparisons.

As part of our monitoring process:

  • Every patient care unit has specific performance metrics.
  • Progress and performance are displayed to keep team members focused on results.
  • Multispecialty teams of nurses, physicians, IT specialists, financial and data analysts work to monitor performance and redesign processes to improve patient care.
