1:30 PM Advancing Humanism in Healthcare: The Importance of Empathy

MOH’s most recent patient satisfaction survey proved that 85.9% of patients surveyed were satisfied with the overall experience. Comparing that to the U.S. with just a 29% satisfaction level, it begs the question, what is Singapore doing differently? Following Irene Chan from KKH, this session will cover how KKH is:

·        Leveraging improved patient compliance to drive better patient outcomes

·        Tangibly increasing trust through improved perception

·        Attracting and retaining better employees by driving an empathetic culture
