Patient Experience Survey
If your clinic is going to participate in MNCM’s Patient Experience survey, you can now begin the required pre-survey validation process. The pre-survey validation confirms a clinic’s participation in the survey. Once the clinic has validated participation the survey vendor has to complete a registration. Clinics need to leave enough time to have everything complete and submitted via the MNCM portal by July 16. To view the MNCM planning calendar click here
Results from the Health Information Technology survey, which took place Feb. 15 through March 15, are now open for viewing. Beginning today (April 24), MNCM will send notices to randomly selected clinics for an audit of their HIT responses. If you have questions about your survey or audit, contact MNCM support
