Patient Experience Matters
MHQP’s Patient Experience Survey (PES) is a statewide survey that asks patients about experiences with their doctor or their child’s doctor, and other staff in the doctors' office. It is one of the few ways we have in Massachusetts to hear and share what patients and families have to say about their healthcare. It is also one of the most accurate ways for provider groups to assess their own performance, compare it to their peers, and set goals for improvement.
Recognizing Collaborative Investments in Patient Experience
The Patient Experience Survey is made possible through collaborative investments from multiple funders including provider organizations, health plans, and the state. The investments of these partners sustain measurement and transparency of patient experience on a statewide scale. By supporting the PES, these organizations are demonstrating a deep commitment to transparency of the patient voice that contributes directly to the well-being of patients and the community.
