Making sure patients, families and visitors can navigate your health system easily is a critical component of patient satisfaction. The more difficult it is for patients and families to find where they are going, the more frustrated they get.
Did you know? According to the Wall Street Journal and Convergent:
- 30 percent of first time visitors get confused and lost when visiting the hospital
- 25 percent of hospital staff can’t find their way around their own facility
- It takes an average of 3 minutes of staff time to direct each lost visitor
Lost patients and families come at a cost—their frustration equals lower patient satisfaction scores resulting in lower reimbursement rates and lost staff time.
