Patient Perception of Care
The AABH patient perception of care survey: putting our patients first
There is no modality quite as unique as that of PHPs or IOPs, and many instruments utilized today include measurement tools which are too broad or perhaps too outdated for the PHP/IOP modality.
The AABH Patient Perception of Care Survey measures the patient’s impression of relevant and personal experiences in the areas of performance– such as ease of admission, confidence in staff and treatment teams, and the comfort of the treatment environment.
The survey also addresses key dimensions of recovery. Notable examples include topics measuring the patient’s feeling of hopefulness, or the importance of group interventions. Most available instruments do not encompass this increasingly important and sensitive domain.
We are pleased to offer the only AABH-sanctioned patient satisfaction survey designed specifically for AABH members and their Partial Hospitalization and Intensive Outpatient Programs, including national PHP/IOP norms. This new solution, offered through a collaboration with the Spectrum of Statistics (SOS), is a very affordable patient satisfaction measurement system.
Completed surveys are sent to the Spectrum of Statistics, AABH’s operations partner for data gathering, analysis and reporting. Surveys caneither be batch mailed or faxed to SOS. Up to125 completed instruments per program may be submitted each reporting period.
Reports are generated four times per year, and provide average ratings for each item, with percentage breakouts of each response choice (e.g. excellent).Your program’s average item scores are benchmarked against national norms.
