Proudly supporting research to improve the patient experience.
Across healthcare, there are already valuable efforts underway to research the value of improving the patient experience before, during, and after care, how it impacts customer service, and the influence of culture on the experience.
The mission of this annual program is to support these research efforts and represents our ongoing commitment to expanding the conversation, learning and sharing around improving the patient experience in the healthcare industry.
