Patrick Henderson, DO
Your mission, should you choose to accept it...Low patient scores can hurt your reputation and your bottom line. Patient experience has grown in importance and is a key performance indicator for healthcare providers. On a daily basis people arrive for care with providers, and they are no longer just patients, but sophisticated and savvy consumers. Providing exemplary care is no longer enough to engage patients. We must make that human connection and accept the mission to create "The Exceptional Experience." The numerous benefits of providing the exceptional experience include: patient retention, loyalty, growth, trust, service recovery and risk mitigation. Join us as we look at the relationship between quality, service and the exceptional experience. Develop a new perspective on the difference between delivering an experience vs. just providing customer service. Gain insight into "exceptional" as we study the top experts in the fields of delivering quality exceptional experiences.
