LINCOLN, NEB., Oct. 10, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Today National Research Corporation and Georgia Hospital Health Services (GHHS) are announcing a partnership to promote state-wide advancement of healthcare performance measurement and improvement services. National Research will provide education of high-impact solutions for care delivery and support Georgia hospitals in developing infrastructure to accelerate performance outcomes while accurately reflecting the patient's voice of their care experience. The National Research portfolio of products spans all segments across the healthcare continuum. The partnership provides a unique opportunity for Georgia Hospital Association (GHA) member hospitals to expand their understanding of the cross-continuum 'healthcare of tomorrow'. This includes meeting the patients' needs for ensuring a safe transition from the hospital to home and knowing the patient and loved ones' voice is precisely represented for advancing care delivery correctly at the bedside. Hospitals will benefit from the thought leadership of National Research within the industry, best practices education, and networking opportunities. "We are very excited to partner with Georgia Hospital Health Services," said Susan Henricks, President and COO at National Research. "We feel strongly that our measurement and improvement solutions will enable Georgians to gain a better understanding of their care and appreciate that their experience and service delivery is the number one priority of Georgia's healthcare system." "It is important that hospitals monitor their quality of care and understand ways to improve it," stated GHA Executive Vice President, Glenn Pearson. "National Research will provide the information our hospitals need to measure both patient and clinical staff satisfaction, thereby enabling them to make meaningful improvements to patient care."
