Follow and join the conversation with #PatientExperience.
According to the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (@AHRQNews) “Patient experience encompasses the range of interactions that patients have with the health care system, including their care from health plans, and from doctors, nurses, and staff in hospitals, physician practices, and other health care facilities.” How can understanding patient experience improve and advance patient-centered care? What aspects of health care delivery fall under the umbrella of patient experience? We will explore answers to these questions and all of the ins and outs of patient experience in this series.

According to Blake Morgan, patients want their doctors to take the time to listen to them and address their problems instead of rushing through their appointment to get to the next patient. Taking the time to actually talk with and listen to each patient not only improves their experience but also helps provide higher-quality care with better results.

The Doctor will See You Now — and You, and You, and You
According to WHYY, hour-long group appointments benefit patients with chronic conditions such as diabetes. “Shared medical appointments aren’t new — the idea has been around since at least the 1970s — but they never really took off in the United States. Cleveland Clinic, Kaiser Permanente and other hospital systems have used them across several specialities for years, but many other systems have been slow to try them.”
