Patient experience is widely considered a key indicator of clinical outcomes and organizational growth. The Affordable Care Act affirmed this connection by withholding Medicare payments to hospitals with low patient satisfaction scores, high readmissions and other benchmarks. Improving the human experience of healthcare has become a top strategic priority for the majority of healthcare executives. To accelerate these improvements, ExperiaHealth founded the National Patient Experience Collaborative in partnership with Stanford University's Clinical Excellence Research Center. Its member healthcare organizations design care models that improve patient, family and staff experience and loyalty, accelerate strategies for market differentiation, and deepen the body of scientific evidence that links the human experience of care to improved outcomes.

Key speakers at the October CXO Roundtable include:

  • Robert J. Henkel, FACHE, president and CEO, Ascension Health, and executive vice president, Ascension Health Alliance;
  • David S. Chernow, president, Select Medical Corporation;
  • M. Bridget Duffy, MD, co-founder, ExperiaHealth, and chief medical officer, Vocera Communications; and
  • Arnold Milstein, MD, MPH, professor of medicine, Stanford University School of Medicine, and director, Stanford's Clinical Excellence Research Center.

"We believe that patient experience improvements have an important impact on the cost and quality of healthcare. A growing number of organizations who have joined this network have connected patient experience with quality, safety, and financial performance. Our research partnerships help to scientifically measure this impact," said M. Bridget Duffy, MD, co-founder, ExperiaHealth, and chief medical officer, Vocera Communications.

"Our aim is to put the science behind a growing body of innovative, affordable models of care that improve outcomes and patient experience," said Arnie Milstein, MD, MPH, professor of medicine at Stanford University and head of the Stanford's Clinical Excellence Research Center. 

ExperiaHealth National Patient Experience Collaborative members, which include: Ascension Health; Lucile Packard Children's Hospital; Mission Health System; NorthShore University Health System; The University of Chicago Medical Center; UCSF Medical Center; University of Wisconsin Hospital and Clinics; and Summa Health System, among others; have made significant improvements in care delivery.
