How Zonka Feedback Aided Sankara Eye Care to Improve Patient Experience

Sankara recognized the need for a robust feedback management system to effectively measure patient experience across various locations. They required a solution capable of efficiently managing the high volume of feedback received from patients and decided to partner with Zonka Feedback.

ChallengeClearing the Vision for Effective Feedback Management

The lack of a streamlined feedback collection process meant that there was no way for the hospital management to identify areas of improvement and take prompt corrective actions. Without feedback from patients, the hospital was at a loss as to what they were doing well and where they could improve.

The hospital faced several challenges in collecting feedback from patients, including:

  • Inefficiencies of Traditional Pen and Paper Surveys: The management faced mounting challenges in handling the volume of feedback. Processing, analyzing, and extracting meaningful insights from the extensive data became increasingly complex. To prevent valuable information from being overlooked, the hospital required an efficient solution to effectively manage and organize the collected feedback
  • Limitations of Google Forms for Feedback Collection: The limitations of Google Forms hindered comprehensive data analysis and decision-making due to restricted feedback capture. The hospital encountered difficulties in overcoming volume constraints and ensuring efficient data analysis.
  • Authenticity Concerns: Traditional surveys, including online forms, are vulnerable to manipulation and bias, which undermines the authenticity of collected feedback. Manipulated or biased feedback can yield inaccurate results and misguide decision-making. Ensuring authentic feedback is crucial for obtaining reliable insights and making informed improvements.
  • Challenges in Managing Feedback Volume at Scale: As feedback collection scaled up, managing the volume became increasingly challenging. Processing, analyzing, and deriving insights from the extensive data posed significant difficulties. The hospital required an efficient solution to handle and organize the feedback, preventing valuable information from being overlooked or lost.

Zonka Feedback has transformed our patient feedback management. With customizable features, email surveys, and location-based reporting, we've seen a significant increase in feedback volume. This has led to swift issue resolution and improved patient satisfaction. Zonka Feedback is a game-changer for enhancing the overall patient experience.
