The HealthStream Engagement Institute was founded to help healthcare organizations improve the quality of the patient experience. How do we achieve this? By teaching that the patient must be at the center of everything we do in a hospital—every patient, every time. We begin by assessing and then developing the people who deliver care to truly understand and manage what the patient, sees, feels, and experiences.

Our tools, tactics and best practices are evidence-based and outcomes driven. We offer custom coaching that produces measureable, sustainable increases in patient satisfaction, employee engagement, quality outcomes, and profitability.
