Who Receives the Survey?

The electronic Medical Practice survey is emailed to University of Utah Health Care patients within a few days of their appointment.  Patients take a 20 question survey and provide comments regarding specific aspects of care.  We use this feedback to improve all aspects of the clinic experience.  Our goal is to provide each patient with an exceptional experience of care.  Each year we hear back from 50,000 patients who receive care in our outpatient centers.

Do you post all comments?

We are committed to posting positive and negative feedback.  However, we do not post comments that are libelous, slanderous, profane or those that risk the privacy of our patients.    99.5% of all physician comments received in the last year have been posted unedited.
