Webinar | Technologies to improve patient satisfaction
Now available on-demand | Duration: 1 hour
Hosted by: Dan Bowman, Editor FierceHealthIT
The connection between patient satisfaction and quality care is well-established. And an excellent patient experience doesn't just build loyalty and a good reputation-it will also have a financial impact on organizations as the industry moves to new and emerging reimbursement models. Patient satisfaction scores, such as the Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HCAHPS), are becoming increasingly important measures. And technology can help hospitals achieve their patient experience goals.
This webcast will feature organizations that are using the technologies to improve the patient experience, including:
Interactive tools to improve wayfinding and to reduce stress for patients and visitors
Barcode scanners and real-time location service technology to improve patient flow and reduce wait times
Communication devices and electronic patient feedback systems that alert staff in real time to service recovery opportunities
Interactive education and entertainment systems that not only inform patients about important information regarding their care but also make wait times seem shorter
Smart rooms that allow patients to customize their environment and entertainment choices in waiting areas, exam rooms, and during high-stress treatments and procedures
