Patient and family experience

Quality and Outcomes Reports - Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition Center

Why we measure it - It's important that we understand how we are doing, so we ask our patients and families to tell us about their care experiences. Our goal is for everyone to have the best clinic experience possible. We ask patients and families to rate our clinic on a scale from 0 to 10 where 0 is the worst clinic and 10 is the best clinic. We only use the responses 9 and 10 to track our progress. We know that patients and families who rate our clinic as a 9 or 10 will most likely refer others to us.


What this means - This graph shows the percent of patients and families who had a visit to the gastroenterology clinic and gave a response of "9 or 10" to the survey question, "Using a number from 0 to 10, where 0 is the worst clinic possible and 10 is the best clinic possible, what number would you use to rate this clinic during your child's stay?"

About the data - Children's Hospital of Wisconsin in Milwaukee uses a third-party vendor to survey our patient and family satisfaction levels. We then use the feedback from these surveys to make improvements within our clinics to further enhance our patient's and families' overall clinic experience.
