Abstract (type = abstract)
PURPOSE
According to the American Medical Association health care organizations can improve work-life satisfaction and patient satisfaction in primary care by implementing pre-visit laboratory testing. The purpose of this project is to evaluate clinician, staff, and patient satisfaction regarding implementation of pre-visit laboratory testing.
METHODOLOGY
Implementation of pre-visit laboratory testing occurred over 6 weeks at a small primary care practice in New Jersey. Diagnostic laboratory tests were ordered at the end of an initial appointment for the next upcoming appointment so that laboratory tests were available to discuss in person at the next appointment. Likert-type questionnaires were used to evaluate staff, clinician, and patient satisfaction with the process. Non-parametric Wilcoxon signed rank test was used to assess a difference in staff satisfaction scores pre and post-implementation. Clinician and patient satisfaction scores were expressed as frequencies/percentages.
RESULTS
A total of 2 clinician (n=2) and 7 staff members (n=7) participated pre and post-implementation. A total of 10 patients (n=10) participated post- implementation. Pre-visit laboratory testing showed no significant difference in staff satisfaction (p > 0.005). All clinicians and majority of patients were satisfied with pre-visit laboratory testing; however, we could not determine statistical significance of this result.
IMPLICATIONS FOR PRACTICE
The results of this project suggest that pre-visit laboratory testing can maintain overall clinician, staff, and patient satisfaction in primary care. However, we could not infer whether high levels of satisfaction were due to the implementation of pre-visit laboratory testing. Also, it became apparent that the majority of the staff, clinicians, and patients were satisfied with traditional methods, indicating that it may not be necessary for primary offices to adopt this practice to improve satisfaction with laboratory procedures. Future research should evaluate the impact of pre-visit laboratory testing on patient, clinician, and staff satisfaction as well its impact on costs and long-term clinical outcomes.
