Rising medical costs and increasing insurance premiums mean that patients now shoulder a greater portion of the financial burden for their healthcare. It rightly follows that with more of their own dollars at stake, patients are more personally involved in their healthcare decisions. They want to know firsthand that they're receiving the most value for their investment.
Today's healthcare organizations must learn that a positive patient experience is not only better for marketing their procedures and services and ultimately the bottom line—but that patient satisfaction is tied to better health outcomes (including lower readmission rates).
