Bloomington, MN (PRWEB) August 07, 2012
Minnesota Eye Consultants and Sophrona Solutions have completed a pilot project to survey thousands of eye care patients across Minnesota in advance of upcoming statewide quality reporting required by the State of Minnesota. Sophrona’s advanced platform allowed staff to survey patient experience and review results internally ahead of the formal survey that will be published online this fall. Anna Mueller, marketing manager for Minnesota Eye Consultants, says, “The success of the survey tool is a marketers dream. Any and all raw data is available at my fingertips in real time.”
Mueller notes, “Implementation of the survey was smoother than I anticipated. Starting with our concept Sophrona quickly executed on the logistics. We were pleased when survey results starting coming in ahead of schedule.” According to Mueller, the simplicity of the survey design, emails, and landing pages contributed to a higher than expected response rate.
Mueller says that results of the survey will be used to help the practice build on its strengths and gain insight for areas of improvement. She says their doctors and staff have observed that many of their patients prefer to communicate electronically with their health care providers, like they do with their friends—it is a way of communicating that is meaningful to them. She notes that the collaboration between Minnesota Eye Consultants and Sophrona to collect meaningful survey data distinguishes patient communication technology as an essential key to patient satisfaction.
Mueller concludes that patient feedback has always been important to Minnesota Eye Consultants, and this survey now makes it easier than ever to obtain and review this essential information.
With statewide quality of care surveys coming in September, Minnesota Eye Consultants and their patients are ready to report.
