5 stages of patient satisfaction and patient frustration

SCI Solutions, a provider of patient care management technology, created an infographic illustrating the five stages of patient satisfaction and patient frustration.

Here the five stages of patient frustration.

1. Scared and confused: This stage can occur when patients are unsure about what is expected of them.

2. Frustrated: Patients can feel frustrated when they struggle to manage their care.

3. Waiting: This happens when a patient has not been given sufficient information during the care process.

4. Surprise: Patients can experience unwelcome surprises in the form of unexpected charges.

5. Angry: When a patient experiences this stage, they may consider switching providers.

Here are the five stages of patient satisfaction.

1. Reassured: Patients can experience this stage upon leaving their physicians office well-informed about the next steps required of them.

2. Respected: Patients can feel respected when tests are scheduled at their preferred location.

3. In control: Online scheduling tools and resources can help a patient feel like they are in control of their care.

4. Prepared: Text message appointment reminders can help a patient feel prepared.

5. Empowered: The end result of a satisfactory care experience.
