Sound continues to innovate in new ways to provide quality care and reduce costs. By unifying critical care and hospital medicine programs under the Sound umbrella, we have been able to improve care delivery stay and receive higher patient satisfaction. As a way to better hear the voices in the communities we serve, Sound takes HCAHPS seriously. Not surprisingly, Sound’s integrated programs have 2.4% higher average HCAHPS scores than non-integrated programs as quality care methods can be better implemented when both the critical care and hospital medicine programs unite.
