Welcome to the official podcast of the Healthcare Experience Foundation. Every one of the millions of small encounters that comprise the healthcare experience serves as a chance to seek excellence, change someone’s day, week, or month. These experiences may even change a patient’s outlook on life itself.
This podcast’s mission is in lockstep with Health Experience Foundation’s ongoing drive to create demonstrable improvements in patient experiences of care. It exists to improve quality and safety outcomes and assist institutions with retaining star employees.
