  • Feb – June 2010 – consistent , reliable data – staff/physician engagement

  • July – IT issues with wireless network

    • Truthpoint VERY responsive/helpful customer service

      • Above and beyond expected service

How has the introduction of TruthPoint changed

your existing satisfaction processes?

  • Managers, Medical Directors, and applicable Support Services Managers are getting service feedback daily

  • Leaders are using feedback to improve service, recognize staff, and for coaching when service expectations are not met

Children’s two “north-star” questions (Overall rating and Would Recommend) and our key driver question (Care /Compassion) have demonstrated break-through performance in 2010 for units using TruthPoint.

Has the introduction of TruthPoint moved any dots?


Children s learnings4
Children’s Learnings

Has this technology created any struggles ?

  • Additional work for support staff and patient care leaders

  • Lack of national benchmarks

  • Methodology cannot be used for future public reporting

  • Translations to other languages

  • Positive response bias

  • Limited by device #s in high-volume, quick turn around areas - Clinics and ED

  • Staff can choose who gets surveyed (not given to upset families)

17


Children s learnings5
Children’s Learnings

Any other insights regarding the introduction of this

capability ?

  • Early buy-in from patient care managers and medical directors

  • Accountability established by leadership for involved units

  • Clear expectations established for survey administrators

  • Time allocation for project lead/team for effective implementation, data analysis, and on-going project management

  • Real-time family feedback has been key for breaking through years of stagnant satisfaction scores. Getting the information in the hands of the care team close to when the service was provided is key to changing staff perceptions of their care and our culture of service excellence.
