Patient and Family Satisfaction

Patient and family member satisfaction are an import factor to consider when evaluating treatment programs. Although satisfaction, in some cases, may not be directly linked to treatment success, it can be a very important factor in identifying and tracking trends relating to staffing, scheduling, and facilities management. Patient and family satisfaction is a very important element in building a strong, word-of-mouth referral network. Modules include mirrored satisfaction and report of outcomes elements enabling verification of patient self-reports.

The family versions of the Herbert Louis Gambling Index and Herbert Louis Substance Use Index both include a domain for Corroboration of Symptoms and Outcomes as well as a domain of Family Member Satisfaction.
