Knowledge and satisfaction – two premises for healthcare service innovation and development: the perspective of UCSPVR users
September 6, 2013 Editor 0
Innovation may be approached as the implementation of new or significantly improved products, of new processes, of new organisational methods for business practices and the local organisation of work or changes in the organisation’s external relationships. In such contexts, the opinions of healthcare service users play a fundamental role in the reform of healthcare units, and especially in terms of economic efficiency, improving care standards and innovating in organisational structures and processes. This article studies the level of user satisfaction with the services provided by three healthcare units. The questionnaire, completed by 638 service users, features three different sections: the socio-demographic characteristics of users, the healthcare visit context, and finally the level of user satisfaction with the services received. Six weak points are identified and improvement in these areas would drive innovation in healthcare provision and the development of the respective organisational units studied.
