The Measurable Impact

When it comes to specific coaching outcomes, recently, the HXF coaching team has delivered three consecutive years of improvement in patient loyalty to a large multispecialty medical group. Additionally, the HXF Coaching team has increased its clients’ HCAHPS national ranking by 30 percentile points and reduced readmission penalties by 20-50 percent.

This was achieved while improving physician and employee engagement with statistical significance.
