AdTel International, Inc. announced today an enhancement to their healthcare provider communication system, DoctorConnect.net
, which will provide hospitals and individual providers to accurately measure patient satisfaction.
The service, called PSI (Patient Satisfaction Index), automatically queries patients via text messaging within 24 hours of discharge from the hospital, or in the case of individual practices within 24 hours of an office visit. Response to the query will provide a scoring grade for the patients overall satisfaction and responders will be sent a link to a secure website to enable them to post specific comments regarding the score they’ve provided.
According to Ross Manley, AdTel’s Vice-President, “Participating healthcare providers will receive a daily summary of patient’s scoring and will be able to review associated comments at any time”.
This service will be available beginning October 1, 2012 to coincide with the Hospital Inpatient Value-Based Purchasing Program through the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).
Manley says, “This program is designed to enable healthcare providers to accurately determine the level of satisfaction their patients express and should be a valuable tool to determine which areas may need to be improved within a practice”.
