Patient Experience Excellence
PRC Awards 2013
Each year, Professional Research Consultants (PRC) recognizes those healthcare organizations that have excelled in creating excellent experiences for patients, as well as making their organizations a better place to work and practice medicine.
Several WakeMed departments/units were honored for creating excellent experiences for patients as well as making our organization a better place to work and practice medicine..
The 2013 awards were based on data collected throughout 2012. They are based upon the percentage of patients who rate their inpatient or outpatient hospital experience as "Excellent."
Since 2006, PRC and WakeMed have been partners in conducting ongoing patient surveys to determine and track patients' perceptions of the care they received.
