FQHC Patient Satisfaction Survey
Safety net FQHCs are typically challenged with initiating and sustaining standardized measurement of patient satisfaction. Baseline survey data establishing how patients rate their satisfaction at San Francisco General Hospital (SFGH) Urgent Care Center (UCC), a public safety net federally qualified health center, located in San Francisco, California is needed. Implementing an existing patient satisfaction survey instrument using a standardized method, with volunteer survey administrators, made this study unique and resulted in a higher rate of survey participation that any other method previously attempted. Survey results determine whether patients' needs and expectations were being met, adding value and allowing for comparison of performance internally over time.
