Patient Centered Medical Homes Patient Survey Results

11/1/2012

As part of our Medical Home initiative we have asked our patients and families to complete patient satisfaction surveys based on access, communication, coordination of care and support. We offered this survey in 2012 and again in 2013 to identify areas that we could strive for improvement. We are very pleased to report that we are able to site improvement in the majority of areas that we surveyed.

The survey questions asked the following and results indicate the percentage of patients/family that agreed:
