Stability, continuity of care, and outstanding service matter
National Patient Recognition Week occurs each year during the first week of February, coinciding with another popular event — Groundhog Day. This year, we imagine that winter’s duration is probably not the first thing on the minds of providers and patients. They’re more likely to be asking how much longer the COVID-19 crisis will last!
The answer to that question is beyond the power of even Punxsutawney Phil, Pennsylvania’s famous groundhog weather forecaster. But we can safely say that midwinter is the perfect time for healthcare practices to pause and consider ways to rededicate themselves to the folks who matter most — their patients.
