Improving the Patient Experience Learning and Action Network Series
Healthcare is personal. Any individual in need of healthcare services becomes vulnerable. The level of comfort and confidence relayed by healthcare professionals at every stage of care can impact positive health outcomes. The Improving Patient Experience series will address key areas for improving patient engagement including community outreach, facility branding, employee ambassadors and patient feedback.
Facility Branding: Identify and Impact Public Perception
An organization’s reputation is formed based on a combination of public image and personal experience. Perception is impacted by a variety of elements from physical space to interactions with employees. An organization’s mission and set of values only contributes to the brand when they are brought to life through personal engagement with the employees, products and services. Join Becky McElroy and Nathan Unruh, DC as they discuss their journey to develop, enhance and grow practice brand.
