BLOOMFIELD, Conn. (Business Wire) -- What's important to you when choosing a hospital? What if you had the results from millions of patient surveys that were analyzed and rated by a leading customer organization? Now Cigna customers can get this information on their local hospitals using their own personalized and secure website, myCigna.com.
Global health service company Cigna (NYSE: CI) is adding Patient Experience ratings for hospitals across the country to its award-winning online physician and hospital directory. The information is provided by the leading source of consumer information and recommendations, and includes results from millions of patient surveys. The ratings include an overall patient experience rating that reflects consumers' overall rating of the hospital and if they would recommend the hospital to friends and family.
"Individuals have access to all kinds of information to help them make decisions on commonly used consumer products and services. When it comes to something as important as choosing a hospital, we want our customers to have access to at least as much information,” said, Jackie Aube, Vice President of Product Development. “For a number of years we've been a leader in providing our customers with reliable cost and quality information. Now we're improving the customer experience by adding patient reviews that include the aspects of care that are important to them.”
Choosing a hospital can be overwhelming. But by combining our hospital pricing and quality information with patient experience ratings, Cigna customers can be empowered to make the best care decisions for themselves and their families.
The new patient experience ratings are available on myCigna.com to all 14 million of Cigna's U.S. health plan customers, including those covered by group health plans, individual plans and Cigna's public exchange plans.
