Patient Satisfaction

According to a Press Ganey survey, the top 15 factors in patient satisfaction all relate to how patients feel they are treated.

Patient Satisfaction

The FISH! Philosophy helps you build stronger relationships with patients. When they feel valued and heard, they are more compliant and have better outcomes.

Trust and Teamwork

Health care is fast-paced and complex. When work gets stressful, teamwork can suffer. Common purpose is essential.

Trust and Teamwork

The FISH! Philosophy builds the trust and appreciation that is key to great teamwork. It helps you care for each other so you can give your best to patients.

Morale and Retention

Every health professional experiences stress, but burnout and turnover is more likely when people feel alone & unappreciated.

Morale and Retention

The FISH! Philosophy gives staff ways to support and acknowledge each other, and to be personally accountable for how they impact others.

Awareness and Creativity

Every interaction with a patient, family member or coworker is a unique opportunity to make a positive difference.

Awareness and Creativity

In a FISH! mindset you see opportunities you never saw before. It helps you respond creatively to situations that scripts can’t anticipate, and delight your patients in unexpected ways.
