Patient satisfaction ppt

  1. 1. PATIENT SATISFACTION DR. N. C. DAS 2. WHAT IS PATIENT SATISFACTION To provide patient-centered care creating a culture that accepts people for, who they are and where, they are in life cycle, by meeting their needs at that point ,with the health system’s mission to care for the body, mind and spirit of patients. Patients are the foundation of our medical practice, it is very obvious that they must be satisfied while in or out of the Hospital. 3. CHALLANGE FOR HEALTH CARE Often long-term duration of interaction Heightened emotional levels - anxiety, fear, pain Purpose is to meet needs Aim is to reduce demand via effectiveness Wide and increasing gap between professional competence and patient understanding Public and private sector competition Open but blurred demarcation between patient and practitioner Ambiguous outcomes for patients and professionals Extraordinary experience rare and intense emotions difficult to describe (personal/abstract) can cause positive/negative care evaluation 4. OBJECTIVE OF PATIENT SATISFACTION Health Care Institutions are primarily patient centric. Patient Satisfaction is the strongest determinant of hospital functioning. Ultimate goal of the hospital is satisfaction of its customers. Not only to satisfy and cared-for patients and families, but also a positive outcome for your staff, your community and your organization’s health. Patient Satisfaction depends on workers motivation, dedication and duty towards the patients. 5. WHY PATIENT SATISFACTION Increased lay knowledge and taboo Increased awareness of professional fallibility and diagnostic uncertainty Rise in scepticism about medicine/science Awareness of wider influences on health Shift in focus from acute to chronic conditions Wide variation in clinical practice Pressure to increase accountability Pressure to democratise public health systems Shift from objective to subjective medicine Pressure of CPA
  2. 2. 6. PRINCIPLES OF PATIENT SATISFACTION 1. QUALITY OF CARE: The quality patient experience doesn’t happen by accident but by standardized practice. A consistently great patient experience is not a matter of attitude, awareness or positive intent but a matter of design and continuous quality improvement. 2. MANAGING ANXIETY, FEAR AND PAIN: “ Anxiety is the rust of life, destroying its brightness and weakening its power.” (Anon) Patients are highly anxious. To create an exceptional patient experience, we need to focus on preventing or lessening anxiety for patients and families. 3. BETTER COMMUNICATION: Some emotions don't make a lot of noise. If we don’t communicate our caring, patients and families might think we don’t care. 7. 4. PERSONAL ATTENTION: Patients and families want personalised care and service . 5. STAFF ACCOUNTABILITY: All staff must be accountable for their role like: Clear responsibility Clear performance Sound measurement and feedback Courageous conversations Consequences reporting 6.SOUND ORGANISATION CULTURE: The more strongly your hospital’s culture supports the quality patient experience, the more sustainable are impressive levels of patient satisfaction. Effective long-term strategies inevitably involve a fresh look at the hospital culture and how it drives or restrains your patient experience vision. 8.
