At The Beryl Institute, we define the patient experience as the sum of all interactions shaped by an organization’s culture that influence patient perceptions across the continuum of care. We have witnessed a continued and global commitment in efforts to improve experience for all in healthcare.

  • We view experience from an integrated perspective of quality, safety, service and cost and believe experience is about driving the outcomes we all strive for in healthcare.
  • We believe all who work in healthcare are the patient experience and value the critical nature that they all have a fundamental understanding of patient experience and a skill set to positively impact these experiences.
  • The patient experience community has expressed the need for a mechanism to translate core principles of patient experience to people throughout healthcare organizations.

PX 101 serves this purpose by distilling the vast resources and knowledge available via the Institute into practical, transferable learning to support your larger patient experience training strategy. This foundational information can be applied immediately on the front lines of care to positively impact experience outcomes.
