How does the Press Ganey survey work?
For over 30 years, Press Ganey has done surveys across the country to help health care organizations improve the safety and quality of patient care.
Patients are randomly selected to take part in Press Ganey surveys. If a patient is selected, they get a survey within a week or two of a clinic visit by email or regular mail.
