Patient Experience Week
Patient Experience Week is an annual event to celebrate healthcare staff impacting patient experience everyday. Inspired by members of The Beryl Institute community, PX Week provides a focused time for organizations to celebrate accomplishments, reenergize efforts and honor the people who impact patient experience everyday. From nurses and physicians, to support staff and executive professionals, to patients, families and communities served, the Institute hopes to bring together healthcare organizations across the globe to observe PX Week. We gathered some announcements and social media chatter about the event.
Happy Patient Experience Week from The @BerylInstitute team! We look forward to seeing your celebrations from wherever you’re at around the world. Use hashtag #PXWeek to share on social media, or email us your photos/celebrations https://t.co/9S6yPWoBye pic.twitter.com/XTxkFcdQY8

Why Patient Retention is the Foundation of Hospital Success
Universal Hospital Services, Inc., a provider of health care technology management and service solutions to the health care industry, discusses the importance of recognizing patients as consumers in today’s culture. “Patients, with more options and more of their own money at stake, through high-deductible health plans, are demanding a more patient-friendly experience. These empowered consumers now access unlimited information anytime, anywhere.

They’re heavily influenced by HCAHPS scores, patient review websites, third-party ratings, etc. As a result, they’re acutely aware of what to expect and are more critical than ever about where they choose to seek care.”
Patients are using publicly available data to determine where they seek care. This #PXWeek, we take a look at several key factors that can impact #patientsatisfaction and offer steps that #hospitals can take to improve the #ptexp.
