Healthcare quality is not only about how expertly doctors treat injuries and manage illnesses. It also is about the personal experiences of patients, beginning with the first phone call to make an appointment and everything that follows.
Measuring and reporting on patient experience has been MHQP’s core work for most of our history. Our signature program is the only statewide patient experience survey of primary care patients in Massachusetts, which asks patients about their experiences with their own doctor or their child’s doctor, as well as other staff in those doctors’ offices, across nine performance categories. In 2019, we also added to our portfolio a patient experience survey of Medicaid recipients in partnership with MassHealth.
