Patient and Family Partnership

Patient and Family PartnershipWe are currently working to recruit patient and family members to bring the patient and family perspective into what we do at Northside Medical Clinic and the Clinton Clinic. We are seeking individuals that are willing to partner with us to improve the experience of care at both clinics by sharing their ideas, feedback, and participation.

Partners will serve as a “voice” for patients and families of patients who receive care at Northside Medical Clinic or the Clinton Clinic. We are looking for individuals who are patients, caregivers, and/or family members who are willing to meet monthly to promote improved relationships between patients, families and staff. Items we will be discussing include:

  • Patient needs and concerns
  • Working with staff to make changes that affect patients and families
  • Assisting in the planning of new patient-related services
  • Serving as a resource providing patient perspectives

A patient and family partnership member would be expected to commit to a minimum one year term; attend 75% of monthly meetings, be able to listen to different opinions and share different points of view; respect the ideas of others; speak comfortably in a group; get along with many different kinds of people; and work as part of a team.

As a patient or family partner, you would be meeting with other patients and family members, health care providers and staff to address patient care issues, communicate patient and family concerns and help with problem solving, with the goal of improving our services. When patient and family volunteers work together with medical staff, the healthcare experience can be improved for everyone. If you are looking for ways to draw on your personal experiences at Northside Medical Clinic or the Clinton Clinic and contribute to the greater good by helping to improve the quality of care at both clinics, this program will provide an excellent opportunity to help meet your needs and use your interests and talents.

There are a variety of opportunities for involvement.

Please contact Twila Mursu at 320-839-4266, or email twila.mursu@oahs.us if you are interested in serving on the Patient and Family Partnership.

Patient Satisfaction Surveys from Ortonville Area Health Services

Patient Satisfaction Surveys, we have all received them and we have all probably thought the same thing when we open them: “Really…another one?!” Maybe it’s time for us to explain why you receive patient satisfaction surveys and the important role that they have in the care that you receive.

Healthcare organizations are required on both the state and federal level, to survey patients to improve patient satisfaction. OAHS currently partners with a company called Press Ganey to manage our survey & reporting process.  Press Ganey is a highly regarded strategic partner to more than 20,000 health care organizations & provides a highly secure and private process for deploying surveys.

Surveys give patients the opportunity and freedom to share about their experiences.  No matter what brings you to a healthcare facility, health care can be stressful and overwhelming. With that understanding we are always looking for ways to make your experience as positive as possible and that is where the surveys come in.  What you experience matters! Whether you had to park too far away or perhaps the exam room was chilly, we want to know about it. Responses and Survey scores help us to know what we do well and help to identify ways of improving health care for you the patient.

Finding areas that we can improve on will always be one of our most important goals. However we also understand the importance or celebrating things that go well. We share the overall data results with our staff members and use the information to both celebrate successes and target areas that we can improve on.

Following any visit at OAHS you may receive a patient survey in the mail.  If you receive a survey in the mail or via email, please take the opportunity to let us know what we did well, and how we can improve.  OAHS appreciates the time you take to respond to the survey and we want to partner with you to improve the services we provide.   We are interested in your feedback, we are interested in improving quality and just want to do things better.   Our focus is you.
