Patient Experience

Perception = Reality

Our goal is for each patient and their caretakers to have an excellent healthcare experience. Many of our contracts with health plans require reporting of patient perception of care provided by NEPHO providers. We utilize patient experience surveys for reporting to health plans and to inform improvement strategies to continually better our performance.
