SENIOR OF THE WEEK Joseph Martin Talsky Class of 2001 MEDICAL CENTER REACHES OUT WITH SURVEY Catalina Island Medical Cen- ter wants to know what the com- munity thinks. For the last several months, the Medical Center has been working with HealthStream Research to document patients' experiences and perceptions about their care at the facility. "We need to be able to measure our patients' feelings about the medical center in a quantifiable way," said hospital CEO Bryan Ballard. "That way we can iden- tify the areas where we need to improve and make the changes our patients want." HealthStream is a w-ell-respect- ed company that works with health- care facilities arotmd the country to identify and subsequently im- prove - patient experiences. They will be calling a representative sample of patients from the Medi- emergency department as well as the ancillary services such as labo- ratory and medical imaging. "Not everyone receives a call, but we would really appreciate it if those who do would take the time to share their thoughts about their experience," Ballard said. The HealthStream survey takes about five to 10 minutes and can be conducted in either English or Spanish depending on the patient's preference. Patients will be asked to rate their experiences on a scale in a number of different categories, such as appointment availability, doctor's knowledge of their health history and facility cleanliness. HealtbStream and its employ- ees will not have any information about the patient's medical condi- tion or treatment. "The survey tak- er will not be able to answer ques- "Patients should call the medical center if they need to know more about their specific treatment plan." While the information collect- ed by the surveys will be used to improve patient care, information about specific patients will not be released. "HealthStream and its employees are very sensitive to patient confidentiality and will al- ways keep patient privacy a prior- ity," Ballard said. Survey phone calls will be ini- tiated from Health.Stream, not the medical center. Patients who are called will see "HealthStream Re- search" on their Caller ID. Ballard said he is available to talk with patients about any spe- cific concerns they may have about the care and customer service at the medical center.
