This is the 2nd in a series of 2 courses on Patient Experience.
WHY IS THIS COURSE IMPORTANT?
The healthcare market is becoming very competitive these days. Patients are much more involved in the decision-making process of where they will take their "healthcare business". If the services they receive are excellent from their perspective, they will return to that healthcare provider as loyal "customers". If the experience is marginal or even worse, they will likely go elsewhere. This bad experience is multiplied by the patient's power to convince their family and friends to take their healthcare services to a different healthcare provider. This is exactly why patient experience is so important these days. Without loyal patients, healthcare organizations can face financial ruin.

WHAT IS YOUR TEACHING STYLE?
My teaching style is a very pragmatic one. I assume you know nothing about this topic and start with the foundation and build from there.

This is why I have appended "Plain and Simple" to all my courses.
