The SurveyVitals solution is continuously evolving to fit our users’ unique needs–healthcare organizations of all sizes and specialties. Improvements and new developments to the online reporting patient experience platform come as a result of direct input and asks from clients.
Our newly released telehealth survey solution makes it easy for practices providing both in-person visits and audio/visual offerings to understand and measure what might feel like a new experience. Additionally, the patient survey interface has been optimized to improve user experience. To learn more about these releases, read below or contact your SurveyVitals account manager.

Due to the spread of the novel coronavirus, COVID-19, more healthcare organizations are offering virtual visits than ever before to reduce the risk of exposure to patients and staff. To help our clients adapt, we developed the Telehealth Patient Satisfaction Questionnaire (TPSQ).
The telehealth survey features 12 questions about the patient experience with virtual visits within your healthcare organization. These questions cover scheduling the visit, logging on, provider communication and interactions, and willingness to recommend.
The telehealth survey easily adapts to your workflow. Organizations offering both in-person and telehealth visits can upload a single patient list for both visit types, so no additional work is needed after survey setup is complete.
Our new digital survey interface was designed to improve the user experience for patients while taking the survey. The update ensures a consistent experience and furthers patient accessibility. Over 90% of SurveyVitals digital surveys are completed on mobile devices.
If you are interested in enabling the telehealth survey for your organization or have questions about the updated survey interface, reach out to your SurveyVitals Account Manager or contact us using the blue chat icon at the bottom of the screen.

The patient experience is improving because of your dedication. Here are some remarkable metrics you were a part of in 2018.
Over 2 million surveys were completed last year, providing feedback on more than 31 million questions and bringing in over 2 million comments. Patient comments were overwhelmingly positive–there were 57 positive words for every one negative word!
Patients aged 64-75 years old were the best respondents, with the highest response rates for email, SMS, and overall. The most satisfied patients were males 25-34 years old for APSQ, and females 65-74 years old for SPSQ.
Our clients logged in over 124,000 times last year and received 138,000 low score alerts and 18,000 contact requests. This helped drive improvement in every area of care, but the most improved areas were Privacy Respected for APSQ and Communication for SPSQ.
Thank you for working with SurveyVitals to help your patients and your organization. We look forward to helping you continue to meet your patient experience goals in 2019!
