Sponsored by: Improving the Patient Experience: Engaging Front-line Staff for a System-Wide Action Plan

Responding to feedback from patient experience surveys, UnityPoint Health moved from a siloed approach to improving the patient experience at each location to a system-wide strategy that provides a consistent, baseline experience while still permitting each institution the latitude to address its specific needs. During Improving the Patient Experience: Engaging Front-line Staff for a System-Wide Action Plan, a July 27, 2017 webinar, Paige Moore, director, patient experience at UnityPoint Health—Des Moines, will share how her organization switched from a top-down, leadership-driven patient experience improvement approach to one that engages front-line staff to own the process.
