Quality and Outcomes Reports - Imaging (Radiology)
Patient and family experience
Why we measure it - For us to understand how we are doing, we ask our patients and families to tell us about their care experiences. Our goal is for everyone to have the best possible experience with us, so while "very good" is a great answer, we use only the response "excellent" to track our progress. We also know that patients and families who rate their care as "excellent" will most likely refer others to our programs.
What this means - These data show the percent of patients and families who had a visit to Imaging and responded "excellent" or "very good" to the survey question, "Overall how would you rate the care you received at this visit?"
What we're doing to provide the best care:
- At Children's Hospital, our focus is on family-centered care. We want our family members and health care providers to work together as partners. Our Family Advisory Committee is made up of parents and hospital staff who work together to improve communication, quality of care and hospital services for families.
- We follow every appointment visit with a thank-you card signed by the team members who helped your child. This card can be saved and used as a reference for parents who have questions about their child's care.
- Our specialists also treat patients at our Children's Hospital of Wisconsin Greenway Clinic and Children's Hospital of Wisconsin New Berlin Clinic. This may help to reduce the number of trips that need to be made to our Milwaukee hospital location.
