Other Patient Experience-Adult Inpatient Measures



Recommendation

What are we measuring and why?

As part of a survey about their experience at Massachusetts General Hospital, hospital patients are asked whether they would recommend the hospital to their friends and family. This information provides us with insight as to the overall experience.

How are we doing and how do we compare to best practice?

Ninety percent (90%) of MGH inpatients indicated that they would definitely recommend MGH to their friends and family. This exceeds the current CMS national average of 71% and the Massachusetts State average of 73% (Oct 12-Sept 13, reporting for both). MGH has been surveying patients about their experiences routinely for more than a decade and we typically score very highly on these summary measures. Our improvement efforts are directed at more specific aspects of the patients’ experience, which help to enhance willingness to recommend the hospital.
