Rx for Success: Patient-Centered Communication for Physicians, Managers, and Staff
In the business of health care, shouldn’t communication with one another place emphasis on caring? Medical practices provide a service, and your patients have a choice about which practice to visit. Excellent communication can make a big difference and increase the number of patients who choose your practice over all the others.
Another important purpose of communication is to advise patients of practice policies that affect them. Explaining the expectations of the practice up front presents the best opportunity for a positive relationship with patients.
Communication improvements take time and effort. Whatever your role in the practice, you must be willing to help as needed. Make yourself available to patients for questions and maybe just a little conversation. Play the gracious host, and welcome your patients to your practice. This publication will provide insight and teach physicians and staff methods to connect with your patients, provide outstanding customer service, and create truly patient-centered communications within your practice.
