The Mater hospital is committed to our Inspired to Care framework of ensuring our patients and their loved ones feel welcomed, valued and safe.
To ensure we are meeting expectations we conduct a Net Promoter Score survey for all our patients who are aged over 18 years of age and admitted overnight. The survey is sent via SMS once the patient is discharged. The survey identify’s our patient experiences and any areas needing improvement. Our Net Promoter Scores are updated Monthly.
Our hospital wide Net Promoter Score for June 2019 is 81.
Patients are asked:
1.How likely are you to recommend the Mater Hospital to your friends and family? (Rating 0-10)
2.What is the most important reason for your score?
How is the Net Promoter Score Calculated?
Responses are grouped into three categories:
Promoters: a score of 9 or 10
Passive: a score of 7 or 8
Detractors: a score of 0 to 6
The Net Promoter score is calculated by subtracting the percentage of Detractors from the percentage of Promoters.
The final score can range anywhere from -100 ( if every patient is a Detractor) to 100 (if every patients is a Promoter).
Results greater than 70 reflect an 'Excellent' patient experience.
In addition, we work with Insync to survey our patients in more detail twice yearly and this allows us to benchmark ourselves with key performance indicators against local and overseas hospitals. The Insync surveys are randomly sent to patients.
