Portland, OR -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/30/2015 -- On November 5 and 6 of 2015, the Harvard Business School Healthcare Alumni Association (HBSHAA) Conference took place in Boston, MA, at the Charles Hotel. Keynote speakers brought awareness to the growing shift of focus on consumerism in the healthcare industry, now that patients have more options for selecting a medical provider due to the growth of high-deductible health plans.
To succeed in an increasingly competitive healthcare market, providers will need to tailor their services to satisfy the needs of patients who now take quality, transparency, convenience and price into account when choosing a provider. Providing patients with high-quality beds, towels, linens and garments is a hospitality service that has a major impact on patient perception, which can affect consumerism. As a premium medical laundry provider of uniform scrubs in Portland, OR, ImageFIRST offers renting, delivering and cleaning services that can help to increase consumerism in medical facilities.
By partnering with the unique and patient-perception-focused laundry services of ImageFIRST Portland, healthcare facilities can provide their patients with products that adhere to infection prevention standards, are of the highest-quality and are extremely comfortable. When patients experience garments and bed linens that are in top condition, they will develop a positive perception of the facility at which they are receiving treatment and will most likely share their thoughts with other individuals – an important factor for increasing consumerism that was presented at the HBSHAA conference.
The superior laundry services of ImageFIRST Portland provide healthcare facilities with a cost-effective solution that can help improve the patient experience, which is an advantage for when traditional hospital revenues will decrease, as predicted and discussed at the HBSHAA conference.
