The Patient, Family and Staff Experience Feedback
The Patient Experience Feedback process at HPHA provides patients, their family members and/or caregivers with an opportunity to express compliments or discuss questions and concerns. We encourage patients, family members and/or caregivers to provide feedback so that we can better understand your care experience. Learning from your experience is a valuable part of our continuous quality improvement program that helps us improve the way we deliver care. We encourage you to complete our patient & family feedback survey that is available upon discharge. You can also access our new Electronic Patient & Family Experience Survey
Our Patient, Family & Staff Feedback Framework
The Huron Perth Healthcare Alliance (HPHA) is committed to seeking feedback from patients, family members, and staff that contributes to a culture of exceptional patient, family and staff experiences. The HPHA views observations, complements, personal experiences, complaints and/or concerns from patients, families and visitors, as a valued source of information regarding the perception of the Alliance environment, and the quality of the services and care provided. Staff feedback helps us focus on processes that will improve quality of work life.
Our Patient, Family Staff Experience Framework
The Huron Perth Healthcare Alliance (HPHA) identified
Patient and Family Centered Care (PFCC) as a priority in 2009 with a goal to
develop an approach that ensures the principles of PFCC are embedded into
everything we do. During this time the organization was adopting Lean
methodology with a goal to sustain continuous improvement at all levels.
Embedding “process optimization” (PO) into the culture became a second priority.
It became evident that a framework was needed to blend these two concepts and
create a culture where the HPHA lived the principles of PFCC and PO every day.

Our Patient Partners
The HPHA is committed to providing the best possible patient and family experience. We do this by partnering with our Patients and their Families and/or Caregivers.
What is a Patient Partner?
A Patient Partner is a patient, a patient’s family member or caregiver who has experienced care within the past two years at any of the four sites of the HPHA. A Patient Partner is interested in sharing their unique thoughts and perspectives based on their experience, to ensure that the voices of the patients and families are heard, considered and included.
What is the Patient Partner Role?
Patient Partners share their valuable insights and first-hand knowledge of how services impact patients and their families. They serve in a volunteer capacity and work together with staff, leaders and physicians to acknowledge both exemplary care and areas for improvement. They also provide input and influence on the policies, programs and practices that impact the quality of care and services that individuals and their families receive at HPHA.
