PRC’s Patient Normative Database
It isn’t enough to know how just your patients feel. It is important to be able to put results in context—to see how patients across the nation rate the quality of care they receive. PRC maintains an extensive and continually updated database of patient responses, providing a baseline from which you can gauge your organization’s performance against other hospitals across the United States. For even more meaningful and accurate comparisons, PRC also has Unit Specialty Norms for both Inpatient and Outpatient service lines that provide you with one-of-a-kind access to nationwide normative data that is truly representative.
HCAHPS and Beyond
Your patients deserve nothing less than excellent care. At PRC, we know that there is a lot more to measuring patient satisfaction than just conducting HCAHPS surveys. Of course, we conduct HCAHPS for hundreds of clients and we understand the role it plays in reimbursement, compliance, and the consistency of patient care. But for hospitals that are ready to look beyond what HCAHPS can offer, PRC’s experience in conducting patient satisfaction research allows you to delve more deeply into the ways patients define service excellence and what it means to have an extraordinary experience.
This is what PRC has been doing for over 30 years. Through helping hospitals better understand their patients’ needs, our clients provide so much more than just consistent care. PRC has success helping hospitals craft extraordinary patient experiences, all the while scoring above the national average on HCAHPS.
PRC can help you measure exactly how your patients feel about your organization and the services you’ve provided. Armed with this information, you can make the clinical and operational changes needed to achieve service excellence. If you need HCAHPS, we can certainly help you with that. If you are ready for the next step, we are uniquely-qualified to get you there.
