How Post-Service Experience Affects Patient Satisfaction

October 1, 2023

In this podcast episode, Jeff Tanner from Acclara delves into the intricacies of the healthcare industry and the patient experience. The conversation begins with an exploration of how we perceive patient interaction when care is rendered. Yet, as Jeff highlights, beyond these immediate interactions, other significant factors shape the patient’s journey — most notably, the often unexpected financial burdens that arise post-care.

Drawing from his experiences, including a memorable interaction with a mentor during his early days as a hospital CFO, Jeff challenges some deep-rooted perceptions about patient satisfaction. While traditionally the quality of cafeteria food was touted as a barometer for overall satisfaction, Jeff posits that the true litmus test is the patient’s reaction upon receiving their financial statement.

Furthermore, with modern initiatives like price transparency and the No Surprises Act coming into play, the episode delves into whether these measures genuinely address the concerns they’re meant to or if there’s more work to be done. Through this discussion, viewers are encouraged to reflect on the broader definition of patient experience and what it means in today’s rapidly evolving healthcare sector.
