UI Health Care recognizes providers with top scores for patient experience

These gifts were made possible by funding from the Volunteer Services Fund.

UI Health Care recently recognized 156 providers with Patient’s Choices Awards for their excellence in patient experience.

Recognition was based upon patient responses to five questions within the “Care Provider” section of patient surveys:

  • Concern showed for patient questions or worries
  • Explanations given to patient about problem or condition
  • Efforts to include patient in decisions about their care
  • Discussion of any proposed treatment (options, risks, benefits, etc.)
  • Likelihood of patient recommending care provider to others

All UI Health Care providers who received 30 or more completed patient surveys in FY21 were eligible for recognition. Only providers with an aggregate score in the top 10% nationally were recognized with Patient’s Choice Awards.

These providers also received a custom Yeti tumbler and an enamel pin (see image).
