“Patient Experience” Is a Bad Word?
Educate, Engage, Empower
A lot of articles, blogs and posts suggesting that the term
“Patient Experience” is inherently bad because it is
derived from the term “Customer Experience”.
Their focus is the word “Customer” which to them means

Companies and brands develop their
version of the Customer Experience. And

Kroger vs. Whole Foods. They have a group of ideals that
need to be met before they make a purchase decision,
whichever retailers’ offerings are most in tune with that
customer’s needs will get the purchase.
Choosing to go to the place that offers the best stuff at the
best locations at the best price is logical. Why wouldn’t
every person want that with every facet of their life?
