As a parent advocate for children with special education needs, or SEN, my family like many in our community tend to be a higher than average user of hospital facilities. However, there is no meaningful information about the quality of care at hospitals, and the gap between the best and worst medical expertise and services at hospitals can be wide. The Zubin Foundation's initiative, HospitalAdvisor, carries with it the promise to make transparent a number of key factors that predict excellence in hospitals, including patient experience. We hope that this effort will help refocus hospitals that operate in an independent and isolated way to focus on quality control, integration, and coordination.
With the growth of mobile devices and internet usage, and a culture change where patients are researching illnesses before seeing their doctors, HospitalAdvisor has come at a good time for patients to make the right decision about health care
On average, how much time did the medical staff (doctors, nurses and others) spend with you/the patient each day (in a 24 hour period)?
