What is a Health Survey: How To Improve The Healthcare Experience

 How was your experience the last time you visited a doctor’s office? How long did you have to wait? Did they apply some kind of health survey to get your opinion?

Surely you have had to answer a form with a pencil and paper, or answer surveys for hospitals while you wait to be treated, perhaps a survey with some questions that will help your doctor to formulate your file. Or many times you take another time, already inside the office, waiting for your doctor to take note of all your symptoms or the treatment he will give you.

That person is feeling bad physically and emotionally, so why not give them a better office visit experience and as physicians show commitment by providing the best care?

QuestionPro continues to innovate, and now you can do a health survey using the Homunculus question that helps you to have better results and to streamline services and the relationship between doctor and patient.

Use our Homunculus question for your health survey

The Homunculus question type captures visual data based on the patient’s selections, by pointing to the area where their body is experiencing discomfort. In these health and disease questions, 24 pain zones can be identified in the front and 29 in the back of the human body, allowing clinicians to get a preliminary but clear idea of ​​the patient’s condition.

We recommend reading other types of questions for your online survey.

You can carry out a short survey using the Homunculus question in your health survey while the patient waits to be treated by the specialist, so that at the time of entering the consultation the doctor already has these data and can lead to a complete examination based on the information previously provided. This, in addition to streamlining the entire medical consultation process, will be providing better care and experience to the patient.
