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.

Patient Feedback Drives Service at WBAMC
In 2017 William Beaumont Army Medical Center provided medical services to over 25,000 Soldiers, more than 28,000 family members and served another 13,000 retirees and their families. The 108-bed facility encompasses five primary care clinics throughout the El Paso, Texas community and has an average of more than 3,700 outpatient visits a day. To help oversee the quality of outpatient services at WBAMC, the Military Health System rolled out a single survey for all military treatment facilities across all services, called the Joint Outpatient Experience Survey (JOES), in 2016.

The day I zipped my lips and let my patients talk
Read this article from STAT, an oldie but goodie, as a reminder that sometimes it’s better to listen more and speak less. According to the author, “studies have shown that doctors interrupt or redirect patients within the first half minute of talking. According to a group of Swiss researchers, when doctors did not interrupt, the average duration of their patients’ monologues was 92 seconds.”
