Why Are Patient Satisfaction Scores Important?
The link between Patient Satisfaction of care and patient compliance is real. Doctors who routinely review their Patient Satisfaction Scores have an essential insight to meet their patient’s needs and improve their practice. By focusing, first, on providing their patients with an exceptional experience, they can connect with their patients and deliver medical expertise.
Doctors and their staff are always looking for ways to improve the delivery of medical care, and Patient Satisfaction scoring does just that. They want to meet their patient’s expectations for their initial evaluation and throughout the doctor-patient relationship. Patient Satisfaction scores should not be underestimated in today’s ever-changing healthcare arena. Medicare is currently reimbursing hospitals based on Patient Satisfaction and Experience scores. With the Accountable Healthcare Act of 2014, doctors will begin to be compensated based on their individual scores.
