Accelerator Completed in September 2022
Press Ganey Mentors
Executives from Press Ganey and C-level suite members from top children’s hospitals shared their experiences and provided insights that shaped this year’s program focus areas for the 2022 Press Ganey KidsX Accelerator:
Removing Data Silos and Increasing Personalization:
- How might we connect patient experience, workforce experience, and operational data to gain a unified understanding?
- How might we leverage data about previous encounters (e.g. feedback, preferences) to personalize patient experiences in the future?
Cultural Competency and Outcomes:
- How might technology mitigate inequities resulting from language and/or cultural differences for patients and families (e.g. real-time translation of discharge instructions)?
- How might technology increase access to underserved communities and improve outcomes?
Re-designing work during workforce shortage:
- How might technology enable top of license performance?
- How might technology identify, address and mitigate key drivers of workforce burnout and harm?
- How might technology help providers detect conditions earlier, enable remote monitoring, and/or escalating if needed?
Workforce Recruitment and Retention:
