FEATURED WHITE PAPER

What Early CG-CAHPS Results and Data Are Telling Us

What Early CG-CAHPS Results and Data Are Telling UsHealthStream, leading patient survey vendor for over 750 hospitals, has collected a large sample of CG-CAHPS survey results from physician offices over the last three years. The survey data identifies clear trends in how patients perceive the care they are receiving from their providers. Specifically, the data illustrates that how well a provider communicates in the exam room has ramifications on the patient’s overall impression of the practice.

Because national CG-CAHPS scores are trending on a tight curve like HCAHPS, providers will need to receive high marks on surveys just to reach the average at the 50th percentile, nationally. It’s time for all providers to develop a patient experience strategy.

Rochester, New York—EScreenz is a new internal communication solution that transforms screensaver technology into an effective communication medium. Originally developed for hospitals, EScreenz broadcasts multiple slide show messages on desktops, laptops – even big screens - throughout a facility across various locations. Intranet, Internet and SharePoint sites are enhanced because users can click on the screensaver to directly access any web page or document online. In addition, targeted messaging allows for slides to go to specific departments.

In the event of a critical situation, an urgent message can be displayed - interrupting the user mid-keystroke.

With a centrally-managed dashboard interface, EScreenz is easy to maintain. “We tried to roll it out slowly by doing one department at a time. However, we had several departments call and ask about the screensaver and when they could get it on their computers, so we just opened it up to all departments at once. Before long, directors were sending us information they wanted placed on the EScreenz screensaver,” says Pauline A. Garcia, BSN, RNC, IBCLC, clinical educator at Uvalde Memorial Hospital in Texas.

“It has been great working with a company with whom absolutely everything goes off without a hitch. [EScreenz] is an excellent and timely way to communicate with staff,” says Garcia.
