Medical Staff Surveys
Data gathered via a medical staff survey-whether it is a “point-in-time” or continuous approach-has many applications. It can help you assess medical staff needs, refine recruitment strategies and needs, determine ways to improve medical staff satisfaction and relationships and critically assess protocols for enhancing patient care.
The interactions and relationships between an organization and its physicians differ from those of staff and administration. This is why we recommend a “special” survey for this purpose. Such a survey may provide a springboard for action plans and an evaluation of the effectiveness of previous plans. It also lends a perspective of depth and breadth to the issues that administration may assume are key to the medical staff.
The Jackson Group has experience with surveys relating to mergers, resource allocations and the expansion of hospitals into new services. The results from each of these surveys provide management and administration with solid data used in making key decisions affecting the medical staff.
Our surveys are designed to provide organizations with data that is specific and actionable. Patient care, physician needs, hospital/physician relationship and satisfaction with staff are just a few of the areas included in medical staff surveys. Our staff works with your organization to design your survey questionnaire. The survey questionnaire consists of questions selected from our bank of standard statements as well as statements crafted specifically for your organization.
