Following on from National Public Health week, which is recognized at the start of every April, we’ve taken a look at how survey software is being used by healthcare organizations such as the NHS.
NHS Trusts are required to collect feedback and conduct assessments on patients and staff, as well as undertaking a range of audits and research projects. The wide range of questionnaires and surveys that each NHS Trust needs to complete can be complicated to administer. It’s often difficult and time consuming to collate responses, analyze them, and determine useful insights and develop ongoing improvements from the data.

Snap surveys recently spoke to a number of health professionals involved in patient experience and clinical audit.
Dr Ava Lorenc is a Research Fellow at London South Bank University.
Dr Lorenc and colleague Professor Nicola Robinson have developed a Toolkit to help organisations involved in sexual and reproductive health find the appropriate methods for their clients and patients to measure the patient experience.
“One of the newer clinics in Camberwell is using an electronic kiosk to gather views, which has a lot of potential as it is confidential and easy to use,” says Ava. “However, our conclusion is that you need to use lots of different methods to capture as many views as possible – from data surveys to in-depth work.”
