- Influence of culture on the patient experience, service and outcomes
- Integrated review of key factors that support positive healthcare experiences
“The mission of the annual programs is to support research efforts to expand the conversation, learning and sharing around improving the patient experience in the healthcare industry,” said Jason Wolf, President of The Beryl Institute. “The opportunity to learn from one another provides the greatest of potential outcomes for all.”
Healthcare leaders and staff engaged in managing or improving patient experience, or graduate students, and/or university faculty members may apply. Research should be relevant to the topics outlined by the grant program and can be in proposal stage, in process or near completion.
