In late 2016, Liberty Resources, Inc. decided to outsource its Consumer satisfaction surveying to a third party vendor. This move was to alight LRI with the rigorous data and review that is expected from the Managed Care Organizations that were awarded the Community Health Choices contract.
Novaetus was selected as the vendor of choice to implement the Consumer satisfaction. In early 2017, Consumers were first notified that LRI would be utilizing Novaetus to survey them for satisfaction.
Over a four month period in mid-2017, Consumers were first sent mailed paper surveys. Surveys were sent along with a stamped and addressed envelope for return. Once the mailed survey period was closed, Novaetus implemented called surveys to Consumers. The phone portion of the surveying period was open for one month.
LRI is excited to utilize the results of the survey. Through the data presented, we hope to fine tune services to better meet the needs of those we serve. Additionally, we hope that this process also aligns us close with quality measures that meet the standards of the Managed Care Organizations.
