HCAHPS is the barometer for understanding a patient’s hospital experience. But can you predict the outcome of your patient satisfaction surveys by reading online reviews from past and present patients? And more importantly, does improving your hospital’s online reputation improve HCAHPS scores? Yes. Reputation.com’s Data Science team, led by Brad Null, Ph.D, analyzed two years of HCAHPS hospital survey data from The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, across more than 4,800 hospitals. The team reviewed the data alongside online reviews, ratings and rankings for those same hospitals, and made some significant discoveries: • Online reviews provide early warning of issues that may impact patient experience, giving hospitals the opportunity to identify and address those issues before patient satisfaction scores suffer. • By continually monitoring, managing, requesting and responding to patient reviews, a healthcare organization can address negative feedback that impacts HCAHPS resu

Brand perception begins online, with the local online reputation of doctors, clinics and hospitals. In late 2017, Reputation.com set out to understand how consumers use the internet to look for healthcare services online, particularly when interacting with healthcare-related ratings and reviews. We surveyed healthcare consumers across the U.S. in a representative range of demographic groups for answers to some key questions: • What are consumers and patients really looking for in online reviews? • What ratings and review factors are most important when choosing a doctor? • What sites are most used and trusted for this information? Findings confirmed that online reviews are an essential part of the healthcare consumer’s decision-making. In this report, we’ll look at the key findings in detail.

Digital technology continues to play an ever-increasing role in today’s modern healthcare systems. While 95% of hospitals in the United States have implemented Electronic Health Records or EHR, much work remains.1 Patient identification errors continue to plague hospitals and are the precipitating factor for 13% of surgical mistakes and 67% of transfusion mix-ups.2 Nationally, medication errors cause at least one death every day and injure 1.3 million people annually.3 The cost of lost lives, reduced productivity and malpractice insurance fees are debilitating the healthcare industry. At the center of every hospital’s safety program is the patient wristband, which provides caregivers access to the information they need at every point of care during the patient stay. However, not all wristbands are of equal quality. Some wristbands are not durable enough to withstand the rigors of a busy hospital environment, leading to workarounds and mistakes that, in the end, comprise patient care. H

Previous best practices for cleaning healthcare facilities centered on sanitizing frequently touched objects, such as bed rails or call buttons, because these objects were believed to be major sources of contagion. However, this new study finds that floors are the largest potential source of pathogens after reviewing five participating Cleveland-area hospitals. Specifically, the following findings are highlighted in the study: • Patient room floors in five hospitals were found to be contaminated with healthcare-associated pathogens. • High-touch objects often came to be in direct contact with the floor. • Touching objects on the floor frequently resulted in transfer of pathogens to hands. • Floors in hospital rooms are overlooked as a source for pathogen dissemination, with potentially dangerous results.

Patients trust healthcare organisations with vast amounts of their sensitive data – not just details on their medical and social wellbeing, but also personally identifiable information such as dates of birth and residential addresses. People will always make mistakes – and, unfortunately, in busy and stressful workplaces, such as hospitals and medical clinics, the likelihood of this increases. Without the right processes and technologies in place to help overcome this to avoid mistakes, sensitive patient information remains at risk.

Couple that with the troubling statistic that upwards of 50 percent of denied claims are never worked by hospitals, and the scope of the issue becomes clear: denials management is vital to the financial health of your organization.

Labeling blood and other samples at the time they are collected improves patient safety and helps prevent a host of problems related to misidentification — including many of the estimated 160,900 adverse events that occur in U.S. hospitals annually because of sample identification errors. There is a strong and growing body of evidence within medical literature that creating specimen identification labels on demand at the patient bedside with a mobile printer can significantly reduce errors. The Joint Commission’s National Patient Safety Goals (NPSG) advocate the use of two patient-specific identifiers, such as name and birthdate, whenever taking blood or other samples from a patient, and to label the sample collection container in the presence of the patient.

Like healthcare organizations elsewhere, reducing readmissions had become a top priority by 2011. Advocate, the state’s largest healthcare provider, had just signed its first shared savings agreement with Blue Cross Blue Shield of Illinois to become one of the first commercial accountable care organizations (ACOs) in the country. This event, along with others such as signing up as a Medicare Shared Savings Provider, led to re-evaluating the care continuum throughout Advocate Health’s 250 sites of care, including 13 acute-care hospitals, two children’s hospitals and a growing home healthcare division.
