We’ll work closely with you to design a survey process to meet your goals. Options include:

  • Baseline surveys: Organization-wide employee insights collected annually. All facilities and departments receive granular results, with comparisons to a robust healthcare database and previous survey periods.
  • Pulse surveys: Targeted surveys focused on specific issues, pressing needs or areas of research, such as the introduction of new policies or evaluation of benefits use.
  • Precision surveys: Surveys pinpointed on key topics identified in baseline efforts. Results track improvement over time and trends over survey periods.
  • Patient safety surveys: Focused on employee views of safety in the workplace. Questions are derived from the Agency for Healthcare Research & Quality (AHRQ) standard patient safety survey and results can be compared to a national database.
  • Medical staff surveys: Assess physician needs to refine recruitment strategies, determine ways to improve medical staff satisfaction and critically evaluate protocols for enhancing patient care.
  • Nursing insight surveys: Designed specifically for nurses in your organization with questions approved by the American Nurses Association for use during the Magnet application process.
