5 Benefits of Higher Patient Experience Scores

patient experience benefits

Today, there’s a bigger emphasis on the patient experience than ever–and for good reason. Here are five reasons you should want to achieve higher patient experience scores.

1. A better patient experience often leads to better outcomes

Numerous studies have shown a correlation between positive patient experience and better health outcomes. The patient experience is measured by factors that reflect trust and understanding between patient and provider, such as communication, confidence, and sensitivity. More satisfied patients tend to comply with treatment and follow recommendations better than dissatisfied patients do (1, 2), leading to better outcomes and continuity of care.

2. Happier patients make for happier providers

Physician burnout affects almost half of U.S. physicians. Research shows physicians with more satisfied patients tend to be happier and experience less burnout. These providers are more likely to form a human connection to their patients, which contributes to the patient experience but also gives them a better sense of well-being and fulfillment.

3. Higher patient experience scores mean lower malpractice risk

A JAMA study found that physicians who score in the bottom one-third on patient satisfaction surveys have malpractice lawsuit rates 110% higher than physicians with top patient satisfaction ratings. Many of the concerns that lead to malpractice suits can be alleviated by understanding your patients’ perceptions of care and working to improve your scores in the most critical areas. Service recovery tools like ‘Contact Me’ also allow for timely follow up to mitigate any potential issues before they arise.

4. Patient experience is directly related to financial success

There are two ways in which patient experience impacts your organization’s financial success.

First, there is a direct link between higher patient experience scores and a healthcare organization’s bottom line. U.S. hospitals with top patient satisfaction scores are reported to have net margins 50 percent higher than those with average to poor scores.

Second, patient experience can affect federal reimbursement. From CAHPS surveys to MIPS measures, the patient experience is a determining factor in federal incentives and penalties. Did you know SurveyVitals can administer nine CAHPS surveys and help you meet certain MIPS measures?

5. A better patient experience gives you a competitive advantage

Eighty-eight percent of patients look online before choosing a physician. To attract new patients, it’s important to showcase your quality of care. One way to do this is by sharing your patient experience scores.

SurveyVitals makes it easy to share your scores in a variety of ways; to learn more, see this blog post.

Additionally, patient experience data can be used as an effective tool by physician services groups and organizations seeking contracts with hospital partners and other facilities.

Orthopedic surgeon gives patients a hand in evaluating his practice

Dr. Tomaino of Tomaino Orthopaedic Care has had a tremendous response rate with his surveys. In fact, he has been in the 99% confidence range for 2 consecutive quarters! We asked him for a few best practices that others can use to improve their response rates and patient satisfaction: Dr. Tomaino told us a top priority for them is to “ask every patient to complete the surveys before they leave.” although this could be considered standard practice it really takes effort executing on a daily basis, Dr. Tomaino went on to say “It keeps us vigilant knowing that we are asking for an anonymous review.”

Communication is essential for success, especially in terms of scheduling. Dr. Tomaino told us “As a solo practitioner, I have the ability to keep wait times to 2 weeks or less. If there is an urgent matter, my staff asks me. If schedulers are not charged with communication with the doctor, there may be a real disconnect.”

Here’s an excerpt.

“Survey Vitals offers easy to administer patient surveys, with low bias and immediate reporting, and great data for continuous improvement and increased patient, employee, and physician satisfaction…” Dr. Tomaino
