Press Ganey Unveils Next-Generation Employee and Physician Engagement Platform

Press Ganey announced the release of its new Engagement Portal, a market-leading employee and physician survey administration and reporting tool. Research has shown that organizational engagement has a dramatic and positive impact on patient experience performance metrics. The Engagement Portal is part of the Press Ganey's Employee Voice(TM) and Physician Voice(TM) solutions to improve the patient experience through measurement, actionable analysis and implementation plans. Built on nearly three decades of research and scientific expertise, Press Ganey's proprietary surveys support a comprehensive approach to improving the total patient experience. As the leading authority on improving the patient experience, Press Ganey's research indicates that an engaged workforce has a meaningful impact on patient experience performance. Hospitals with engaged employees and physicians perform dramatically better on every HCAHPS domain, including significant percentile point increases on nurse communications, doctor communications and overall hospital rating. The Portal provides a multi-dimensional view of engagement to identify challenging areas, prioritize actions and set goals for improvement. The portal provides users with individualized, permission-based reports on specific units within their organization -- with unlimited drill-downs for organizational leaders. With powerful capabilities to map even the most complex organizational structures, results can be viewed hierarchically as direct reports, or by matrices, which show indirect reporting relationships. For example, results of physicians who perform dual roles (hospital, clinic, referring) are precisely displayed. A dashboard of easy-to-understand, yet robust, metrics helps organizational leaders pinpoint areas for targeted improvement as well as understand each group's readiness to engage in feedback and action planning.
