Improving the Patient Experience by Engaging Front-Line Staff in a System-Wide Action Plan Focus of July 27, 2017 Webinar


UnityPoint Health—Des Moines will share its system-wide, data-driven approach to improving the patient experience that empowers front-line staff to own the process during a July 27, 2017 webcast sponsored by the Healthcare Intelligence Network.

Sea Girt, NJ, June 28, 2017 --(PR.com)-- Armed with data from its Press Ganey and CAHPS® Hospital Survey scores, UnityPoint's patient experience team developed a front-line staff-driven action plan that engages its employees to own the process.

During "Improving the Patient Experience: Engaging Front-line Staff for a System-Wide Action Plan," a July 27, 2017 webinar at 1:30 p.m. Eastern, UnityPoint Health—Des Moines will share its transition from a siloed approach to improving the patient experience at each location to a system-wide strategy that provides a consistent, baseline experience while still allowing each institution the latitude to address population-specific needs.

Following this 45-minute live webcast, this Healthcare Intelligence Network program will be available in on-demand and recorded formats for educational and training purposes.

Quote Attributable to Melanie Matthews, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer, Healthcare Intelligence Network:

"As linkage of healthcare reimbursement to clinical and quality outcomes becomes the norm, the measure of patient experience emerges as a critical marker. And who better to influence patients' impressions than the front-line staff that serve them? UnityPoint Health—Des Moines has crafted a unifying system-wide strategy to improvement that still leaves room for each facility to tailor its patient experience to fit population needs."
