Branford, CT (PRWEB) July 08, 2013
In Hospital Compare's April-2013 Report, Voyance clients surpassed national hospital scores in all ten TopBox measures by an average of 11%. A CMS-approved CAHPS® vendor since 2008, Voyance clients have consistently reported superior scores and results since the program’s inception.
Two of the ten most influential measures are tied to patient loyalty and satisfaction. The ‘Overall Rating of Hospital’ measure asks patients, “Using any number from 0 to 10, where 0 is the worst hospital possible and 10 is the best hospital possible, what number would you use to rate this hospital during your stay?” Voyance clients averaged an 84% TopBox response, as compared with the nationally published average of 70%. Patients are also asked, “Would you recommend this hospital to your friends and family?” Voyance clients averaged an 86% TopBox response, well above the national average of 71%.
“We are happy to watch our clients continue to sustain such a high level of excellence with H-CAHPS performance,” notes Paul Faraclas, President and CEO of Voyance. “Our designated H-CAHPS team works closely with our clients. Voyance’s internal QA processes ensure patient information is delivered to us in a timely manner ensuring quick turnaround to their patients. Voyance clients remain engaged in the surveying process, constantly taking steps to improve performance by fine-tuning all details tied to evidence-based best practices. It is rewarding to see their actions correlate to stellar results.”
Voyance hospital surveying solution, EdgeH-CAHPS, enables clients to identify quality and process improvement opportunities. EdgeH-CAHPS combines the standardized H-CAHPS survey with Voyance’s core surveying tool, EdgePerception, to provide hospitals with a more holistic view of overall performance. EdgeH-CAHPS also stresses the timeliness of delivering the surveys to patients to reduce as much lag time bias as possible. The program offers the opportunity to focus on improved care and service, risk mitigation, and improved H-CAHPS performance.
