Engaging Patients the First Step to a Successful Accountable Care Organization

Register to Attend the Next reThinking eHealth Webinar Wednesday, November 17, 2PM EST/ 11AM PST

BIRMINGHAM, Ala.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- According to a recent survey from HealthLeaders Media, 80% of healthcare executives believe the patient experience will be a business imperative that drives referrals, volume and revenue as much as clinical quality.

That number will continue to rise as patient satisfaction plays an increasingly important role in the decision to become an accountable care organization. The success or failure of an ACO will depend, in no small part, on a healthcare organization’s ability to understand the experience patients want, what patients expect and how the organization can deliver.

So, while 93% of hospital executives agree that improving the patient experience is a top priority, nearly 40% have no plan to engage with patients online. What should your hospital do now to start improving patient satisfaction and preparing to establish an ACO?
