  2. 2. SurveyMonkey Enterprise, which allows organizations to easily manage surveys across departments and share data, allows Vidant Medical Group to create surveys for its operational, billing, and clinical quality departments. “We want to make sure that we’re serving patients well, that we’re reducing physician turnover, and that we’re bringing in revenue and tracking costs,” explains Eric Johnson, Business Services Analyst and HIPAA Officer for Vidant Medical Group. Improving operational efficiency Launched in 2009, Vidant Medical Group is a relatively young physician group—and in 2012, the company nearly doubled the number of clinics through mergers and acquisitions. Surveys collect feedback on the tools administrators need for the operational efficiency of clinics. “We ask clinics which vendors they’re using, so we can go to these vendors and ask for the best prices,” Johnson says. Maintaining clinical quality The feedback gathered using SurveyMonkey Enterprise helps the healthcare provider reduce staff turnover. “We ask physicians about their satisfaction with compensation and administrative tasks, and when they’re not satisfied, we work to improve those areas,” Johnson says. Now that staff sees that feedback results in positive changes, participation in periodic surveys is increasing.

Based on our survey, we’re doing re-education for staff to avoid these errors. – Eric Johnson, Business Services Analyst and HIPAA Officer, Vidant Medical Group registration staff to gauge their knowledge on registering patients.
