By focusing on the higher, often unrecognized, needs of employees and patients and building on strong organizational culture, hospitals and healthcare organizations can experience effective outcomes.
Bedford, Texas (PRWEB) September 26, 2011
To offer new perspective on how healthcare can improve the experience of patients and their families, The Beryl Institute partnered with Chip Conley, author of PEAK and founder of boutique hotel company Joie de Vivre, for its latest white paper, Creating PEAK Patient Experiences: Applying Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs to Healthcare.
Examining the many parallels between the hotel and healthcare industries, the paper shares Conley’s insights on building a leading service organization by using Maslow’s Hierarchy as a foundation for examining relationships with employees, customers and investors. “By focusing on the higher, often unrecognized, needs of employees and patients and building on strong organizational culture, hospitals and healthcare organizations can experience effective outcomes,” says Conley.
The paper offers ideas and tools to foster cultures where employees view their work life as a calling versus a job and explains how that differentiation can have a significant impact in the experience provided to patients. It also provides a unique look at the needs of patients and how focusing attention on meeting their desires over managing transactional expectations has the greatest influence on overall patient experience.
“There is a reason why healthcare leaders are intrigued by ideas from such places as Disney, The Ritz Carlton, or in the case of this paper Joie de Vivre. They fundamentally and expertly understand that service is about being exceptional in every way they interact with the customer,” noted Jason Wolf, executive director of The Beryl Institute. “From that perspective, healthcare is no different.”
