As this is done, Kaiser Permanente’s new service delivery plans will describe how and where care will be delivered in the future.

In 2016, when the name Mayo Clinic is used in conversation between medical professionals and patients alike, it is more than likely used in a way that reflects complete medical confidence or satisfaction regardless of the interaction. The Mayo Clinic was conceived through honorable roots and with the best intentions in 1889 when a faithful servant of God approached a humble doctor with the idea to construct a hospital. (Peters, Casale, Halyard, Keith, Frey, Bunkers, & Caubet, 2014.) What grew from this mutual idea has blossomed into one of the most robust and identifiable medical institutions on the planet. The success can be largely attributed to its business model which is understood to be the reason so many doctors or other medical professionals
The changing climate as a result of the advent of value-based care continues to place significant demands on hospitals, medical providers, healthcare organizations, and physicians to take a completely new look at the marketing strategy. A coherent strategy and sustained quality are critical in today’s healthcare market to attract new patients, retain existing clients, and maintain positive and productive relationships between the patients and hospital staff. To be viable today, healthcare organizations have to utilize effective strategic planning to develop integrated marketing strategies that makes it efficient and easy for the target population to identify what they need, make informed decisions, and provide insights and new information – not just basic promotion. Also, such efforts have to be constantly evaluated to ensure highest quality that fosters better outcomes and more value for the

Urgent care centers bridge the gap between emergency rooms and primary care physicians. By doing so such facilities are able to fill a niche in the market. However, one of the main drawbacks of urgent care centers is that continuity of care is low. Many patients, particularly the elderly, place a high importance on building relationships with their providers. Convenient care, with its episodic nature, poses the risk of fragmenting and disrupting such relationships.
Medicare reimbursement is partially based on a facility’s Star Rating. A critical component to this is patient surveys and HCAHPS. I have seen a push toward the customer service experience. Indeed, I feel strongly that every healthcare worker including nurses should treat each of their patients with respect, equality and do the absolute best to meet their needs.
We accomplished this through interviews with clinic leaders. The purposes of these interviews were twofold: Firstly, to evaluate the plausibility of our findings and secondly to understand the key differences between the PCMH and non-PCMH clinics in regards to the availability of the PCMH attributes. Among all the responses, “access to care” was most frequently cited by experts. By operating with extended office hours, including weekends, and a helpline available to their patients, the PCMH clinics offer accessibility to those who would otherwise not have access to care. A good example is people with disabilities for whom they usually need assistance from family members or friends to commute or travel.
Questions will include their satisfaction in getting the appointments; if they were notified of their appointments in an acceptable time frame; their wait time to see a specialist; and the information they received was suitable. The results of this information will shared with referral committee to determine the referral processes that will offer the best procedures for Southside HMO and the Sunnyside healthcare organization. This is an excellent opportunity to understand the needs of our customers and also for our organizations that can provide a positive impact for the entire

PROBLEM SOLUTION With patients today using the threat of reporting low satisfaction rates in the hopes of receiving faster or higher quality care, they seem to have taken the upper hand in some of the decision making of what takes place in the healthcare world today (Sullivan). But is it really the survey results that will make the drastic changes that are needed? Instead of questioning whether providers spend enough time with patients, ensuring that the provider gives the patient the option of which medical treatment or drug is best for them, or simply having the patient rate the provider from 0-10, zero being “worst provider possible” to ten being “best provider possible,” (Ganey) patients should simply be asked to leave comments or concerns about their visit. It is understandable and unfortunate that not everyone in the healthcare field can do their job professionally and appropriately, and those people should be reported.

This study took place at Mount Sinai Medical Center, an academic medical institution. Leadership roles were present and there was audit and feedback throughout (Melnick et al., 2010).
