Part One: The Patient Journey
Participants examine the patient’s experience through the eyes of the patient and discuss how it differs from the provider’s perspective.
Part Two: The Patient Experience Matters
Explore a real-life case study about one patient’s hospital discharge experience. Discover how emotions impact behavior along the discharge journey. Identify powerful statistics connecting patient-centered care to improved patient outcomes, patient and employee satisfaction, and your organization’s bottom line.
Part Three: What Patients Want
Identify the gaps in your hospital’s patient journey and how they cause patients to feel. Learn how patients want to feel and explore ways to fill the gap between how patients want to feel and how the hospital’s policies, procedures and people cause them to feel.
Part Four: Synthesis and Action
Reimagine the patient journey at your facility, incorporating your Patient I Wants© discoveries. Make specific commitments to improving processes, ongoing training and, most importantly, changing culture.
