This webinar will describe methods and lessons learned to date from a pilot project designed to assess the implementation and use of the new CAHPS Patient Narrative Elicitation Protocol (NEP) in several New York-Presbyterian (NYP) ambulatory care practices.

The webinar will review research evidence regarding the effectiveness of the NEP in eliciting actionable information that can be used by clinicians and practices for improving patient experiences, and will discuss early results of the pilot project to collect the NEP as part of routine patient survey operations at NYP and to develop new feedback methods for reporting survey results and narrative comments back to clinicians and practice leaders.

Unconscious bias, also known as implicit social cognition, refers to the attitudes or stereotypes that affect our understanding, actions, and decisions in an unconscious manner.

Attendees of this webinar will gain relevant understanding on how personal and system level awareness and accountability for biases can improve organization-wide performance and ultimately, the patient experience.

Physician Engagement Strategies
Justin Bright, M.D. | Senior Staff Physician, Henry Ford Hospital

It is critical for patient experience professionals to better understand the mindset of the people they are most trying to engage.

Hundreds of responses from emergency medicine physicians about patient experience concepts and initiatives were captured. Webinar participants will walk away with a new perspective and concrete examples of what patient experience professionals can immediately implement in order to better accomplish their organizational objectives.

Social Media from the Lens of a Multigenerational Workforce
Laura Miller, CPXP | Managing Consultant, NICU Innovation, March of Dimes Foundation

For most hospitals, the patient experience begins with their online presence. Patients and families utilize the hospital's website and social media (SM) outlets to help understand the system and manage expectations. As SM expands as a resource for communicating, information and gallery sharing, and for other needs, hospitals are challenged with the task of how to handle the potential pitfalls and hazards of the medium beyond their website. This webinar will look at communication and SM from the lens of a multigenerational workforce, exploring how each generation prefers to communicate in different ways. It will discuss how each platform can benefit an organization, and provide examples of how employees underestimated the impact their online presence and posts would have on themselves and to their organization. Participants will learn different avenues a hospital can use to engage employees to create policies that benefit the patients as well as the employees and organization.
