Customer Satisfaction

Champions & Desperados

Champions
Corporate Patients Business executives who prefer paying more to get more, Price insensitive patients Patients who could not get the service in any other hospital e.g. Neurological patients

Desperados
Patients who are forced to have tests at the hospital at a higher price which are sometimes unnecessaryusually very price sensitive patients Wrongfully diagnosed patients Who think they are being charged more than they should be.

Sources of Dissatisfaction
Very expensive
Unannounced raise in price of pathological tests
Better service to the Corporate customers than the ordinary ones.

Patients are sometimes put to ICU even though its not necessary
Patients are not discharged by the hospital easily (by the hospital authority) Doctors pressure to get the tests done from the hospital labs instead of having them done elsewhere
Some patients also complain that the doctors do not come on time

Satisfaction Action Plan

Different packages and facilities according to the affordability of the patients

Informing the patients beforehand through a phone call or an SMS if a doctor is supposed to be late

Flexibility in recommendin g places to get any tests done (without affecting the patients health)

The rate for the tests should be matched to those of the other hospitals and any increase in the fees should be justified by the authority

Strict regulations and instructions on at what conditions patients should not be released with doctors permission

MDC framework

Mobilize

Mobilize our employees from top level management to lower level employees by providing them with a shared objective which is keeping our commitment while serving people.

Holding meeting once in every three months to remind every employee of the objective and make sure that the objective of satisfying, retaining and engaging customers is being fulfilled.

We have to make sure that whoever is involved with this organisation shares the same objective to serve customers.

MDC framework

Detect

We have already detected the sources of dissatisfaction to the customers.

We can lower the price of our service so that we can serve a large number of people.

If any doctor comes in late then we would like to provide 50% discount to the charge that has been made to get the service on time.

MDC framework
Convert

We will have open communication where the customers can share their point of views and so that they get a chance to have a direct conversation with us.

We would have hotline or let them fill up a comment form through which the customers can tell us what they dislike about our service.

MDC framework
We will train the employees to pay attention to the complaints made by the customer and try to solve it immediately so that we can have loyal customers.
We can also do some CSR activities i.e. providing poor people with clothes in winter and giving the poor children free medication so that we engage both customers and non-customers which very important for any type of organisation.

Conclusion
Though Apollo Hospital has already been an established hospital in the town, yet they can attract more patients by implementing specific customer satisfaction, retention and engagement plan. These plans will bring good for both the patients and hospitals resulting in higher revenue for the hospital and creating higher values to patients.
