National Patient Experience Week Resource Hub

Patient Experience Week

Patient experience is fundamentally about how we deliver safe, high-quality care in an environment of patient-centeredness. It is not about making people happy or satisfied, that’s simply customer service, a small, expected component of the experience.

Patient Experience is much more, and defined as having 5 contributing components: 

  • The safe clinical care of the patient;
  • The operations of the organisation that ensure staffing is adequate, sufficiently trained and resourced to get the job done;
  • The culture of the organisation that encourages value for patients, open and transparent communication and collaboration;
  • Behaviours of every person that demonstrate the mission, vision and values of the organisation; and
  • The recognition that the patient is at the centre of everything they do.

During National Patient Experience Week (26-30 April 2021), hospitals and healthcare organisations salute the people responsible for providing excellent patient experiences and creating better outcomes for both patients and healthcare organisations. Those people may include doctors, nurses, administrative staff, executive team members, community organisations and even patient family members.

It’s also an important time to acknowledge and showcase the innovative efforts of our clients who integrate their patient, employee and doctor data, with our support, to produce outstanding clinical outcomes, improvements in patient perceptions, staff morale, operational efficiencies and financial performance.

We hope the tactics and strategies highlighted in these case studies will enlighten and motivate individuals in all types of health care organisations. Because good ideas should be recognised and shared.
