Service Plus® for Healthcare
Ensure Excellent Service for Patient Loyalty
Does your staff have trouble relating to patients on a personal basis? Can they meet or exceed needs? Do they struggle to "recover" a service situation with a dissatisfied patient?
DDI’s Service Plus® program for healthcare services helps your staff develop key skills to deliver top-quality patient care. When your employees show these skills, you get patients who demonstrate “the three R’s” of loyalty:
- Return to your facility because they view you as their healthcare provider of choice.
- Refer others.
- Relate to service providers as partners in their care.

With DDI’s Service Plus® program for healthcare services, your staff can:
- Understand the impact excellent service has on achieving customer satisfaction and loyalty.
- Describe the two basic needs of patients and other customers.
- Use Key Principles to meet the personal needs of patients and other customers.
- Use Service Steps to meet the practical needs of patients and other customers.
- Balance their use of Key Principles and Service Steps.
- Take the HEAT when dealing with dissatisfied patients and other customers.
