Patient Satisfaction – through compassionate, comprehensive care – is our #1 goal
Constant improvement to the quality of our services is always top-of-mind at Desert AIDS Project. That’s why we periodically survey our patients to determine their level of satisfaction with services provided at our Wells Fargo HIV Health Center and our in-house HIV specialty dental clinic.
The 16 pie charts below (click for a larger version) provide an overall snapshot of the most recent survey, conducted during two time periods: April 24-26, 2013 and June 3-6, 2013. The confidential surveys were provided, in English and Spanish, to each patient as they checked-in for an appointment at the clinic.
While participation in the survey was completely voluntary, 107 of 339 patients during those two time periods completed it – a 32% completion rate. We are pleased to say that 87% of patients rated all areas of the health center as “great” or “good.”
Responding patients used the following words and phrases to describe our services: friendly, knowledgeable, make you feel at ease, efficient, clean. Patient concerns included travel and location problems, requirements to frequently complete updated paperwork, and issues related to doctor turnover. However, multiple patients complimented the new and current provider team.
Our efforts to constantly improve our standards of care and service will be ongoing through our Quality Improvement Committee of the D.A.P. board of directors and work with the Client Advocacy Committee. In addition, our new Building Connections Initiative seeks to establish trust and meaningful connections between D.A.P. staff and clients – and to sustain these positive connections in every encounter.
Our goal is always to help clients feel safe, reduce anxiety, and improve their overall state of health. We hope the ultimate result will be a more healing, fulfilling environment for everyone.
