It is commonplace for a healthcare organization to gather data from a patient after he or she receives healthcare services to determine whether the patient is satisfied with the care he or she has received. Each organization has its own policy by which the data is gathered and then interpreted.
Contact the patient advocacy department at Augusta, Georgia local healthcare facility. Ask the representative to explain the policy of gathering patient data regarding satisfaction with the care that was received.
If you have difficulty finding contacts at your local healthcare facility, you may contact https://www.bayhealth.org/patient-advocacy, https://www.va.gov/health/patientadvocate/ or https://www.mdanderson.org/patients-family/diagnosis-treatment/patient-support/patient-advocacy.html.
Share your findings in a 1250-word paper. Address the following:
Once the data is collected, how is it interpreted?
What is done with the data when it is found to be a positive experience? A negative experience?
To what extent is the data used to make changes within this particular healthcare organization so that overall care can be improved?
Once you assess these findings, do you think that this is a proper way to gather, interpret, and make adjustments related to the results? Why or why not?
Your paper should be written in APA style with a title page and references page. Your in-text citations should support the research you conducted.
