Engaged physicians not only strengthen your hospital’s brand, but also improve the overall patient experience. With that, PRC’s Physician Engagement Study determines how aligned physicians are with your hospital’s mission and values. Sporting the largest national database for physician research, we uncover you exactly where you stand, providing physicians, nurses, and managers an undeniable benchmark for success.

Referring Physician Experience Study

In today’s specialized healthcare marketplace, physician referrals are a common part of the job. By conducting a Referring Physician Experience Study, you place your referral process under a microscope to ensure it’s as smooth as possible for your hospital and physicians, helping optimize existing referrals along the way.

Referring Physician Market Needs Assessment

Specialized healthcare organizations such as children’s hospitals, cancer centers, and other academic medical centers are up against one another when it comes to referrals. Physicians oftentimes refer patients to these organizations based on their specific needs, but what influences their decision to send a patient to one over the other? PRC’s Referring Physician Market Needs Assessment analyzes the requirements physicians assess when making referrals, giving hospitals valuable insight into how they can gain more referrals.

Pulse Study

Like the name suggests, Pulse Studies are short surveys that measure, or take a periodic “pulse,” of certain aspects that an organization wants to improve. They’re especially effective when gauging progress and building accountability among staff and physicians during action planning initiatives.
