An approach to measuring User Satisfaction

…Measure of how your organisation’s total product performs in relation to a set of customer requirements.

“How to Measure Customer Satisfaction”. 2nd edition.


Capturing information on user satisfaction

  • Compliments

  • Complaints

  • Meeting forums

  • One to one conversation

  • Correspondence (email, letter)

  • Questionnaires


Questionnaire Structure

  • Importance

  • Satisfaction

  • Comments


Q1.How important is the availability of access to advice / information from the Pathology Department?

Mirror Survey

  • Survey Employees

  • Highlights Underestimation of Importance

  • Facilitates Internal Feedback


WEQAS on-line survey Project

Aims - Seek to demonstrate the potential of structured assessment of user requirement and satisfaction as a reliable, valid, robust indicator of service quality and its continued improvement.

  • Potential benefits:

  • Demonstrate the potential of user satisfaction as a reliable indicator of service quality.

  • Promote and roll out good practice – do once and share.

  • Reduce duplication of effort. – CPA requires regular surveys to be carried out

  • Giving all services access to “good” survey question design.

  • The results of structured all Wales surveys following a schedule of topics, will inform

  • future service planning and improvement.

  • Compare within and between lab performance of meeting user requirement by use of

  • the overall “satisfaction index”.

  • Contributing to developing key performance indicators that capture the value of

  • Pathology services.


Method:

A proof of concept on-line survey using Survey Monkey has been conducted

Pilot to All Wales distributed to Quality Managers

April 2009: On line survey for national use distributed comprising 10 questions from the Gwent Healthcare NHS Trust user survey

Pilot to local users in ABMU (Swansea/Bridgend area)

April 2009: On line survey for local use distributed using the survey principles of the Gwent Healthcare NHS Trust user survey


http://www.surveymonkey.com


How does it work?

Step 1 – Design the survey


Users receive an email with a link to the survey:

To complete the survey- please follow the attached link:

http://www.surveymonkey.com/s.aspx?sm=ZpY5MHue4oUTAPLMI6Ui4Q_3d_3d


….. or post the link on your local trust web site:


Step 2 – User completes survey


Step 3 – Collect the results


Results for all user types…


or filtered by user category… (in this case Consultant medical Staff)


and if you have asked for comments click “view ….”


Export the results to calculate the satisfaction index score….


Satisfaction Index Calculation

Performance assessment - the satisfaction index (parametric example)

Mean and standard deviation of the “importance” and “satisfaction” responses will be calculated for each question. A weighting factor will be calculated from the (mean importance / ∑ importance). The “mean satisfaction” value will be multiplied by a weighting factor to calculate a weighted score based on importance. Satisfaction index (%) = ∑ weighted score *10

A satisfaction index is calculated for each Laboratory (and a sub-score for each discipline). Performance is assessed within and between Laboratories using the Satisfaction Index.

A&E – sample questions

  • Is there an agreement between A&E Consultant staff regarding requesting certain tests e.g. Thyroid function?

  • Does your Pathology deliver a service compatible with achieving A&E targets?

  • Is there a difference between the Pathology service:

    • Out-of-hours and within working hours

    • Between-Pathology disciplines

  • Form filling:

    • How dissatisfied are you with manual filling in of request forms?

    • How important is electronic test requesting?

  • Add-on tests:

    • How important is the ability to retrospectively add on tests?

    • How easy do you find this?


  • On-call mortician

    • How important is your on-call mortician service?

    • How satisfied are you with your on-call mortician service?

  • Toxicology:

    • Are you satisfied with the local toxicology service that is provided?

  • POCT pregnancy:

    • Do you use POCT pregnancy testing?

    • Are you satisfied with local provision?

  • POCT glucose:

    • How satisfied are you with the training and assessment of competency of users of POCT glucose devices?


  • POCT blood gases:

    • How compliant are medical staff with POCT blood gas analysis procedures? (e.g. individual password use, disinfection etc)

  • Results:

    • How important is the paper report?

    • How important is it to see on the computer whether the sample has been received yet by the laboratory (even if not yet analysed)?

  • Incidents:

    • How responsive is your Pathology Service to investigating relevant incidents which arise in A&E?

  • Emergency Planning:

    • Does your Trust have one system for assigning emergency specimen numbers for a major incident?

    • Does your A&E department have a stock of in-date tubes for sample collection for chemical incidents?


Who to contact?

  • To whom should questionnaire be sent?

  • Suggest:

    • All lead Consultants

    • Named Lead Nurse

    • Service Manager


Results

  • Report for All-Wales

  • Sub-report for each individual Trust

  • ABMU to provide support for collation of results


In summary

  • The assessment of user requirement and satisfaction is a CPA requirement.

  • It informs your policies

  • It is important to have a structured approach to measuring this.

  • The degree of user satisfaction is as legitimate and important a measure of quality

  • as the more traditional assessments of accuracy/precision and timeliness.

  • Electronic survey methods enable Laboratories to compare their satisfaction scores

  • (when distributing identical surveys) and set bench marking standards.

  • It is a driver for continuous service improvement
