Hospital systems make it easier to access and coordinate care, according to a national survey of their patients conducted by Morning Consult for the AHA. Nearly all patients cited the ability of their care team to easily access their medical history, lab results or other essential health information as a benefit and found comfort that their hospital system has specialists or provides complex care they may need in the future.  
  
 “It’s no surprise that patients are satisfied with the hospital systems in their community for their integrated care, accessibility, and efficiency,” said AHA President and CEO Rick Pollack. “Hospital systems play a pivotal role in preserving and advancing care in communities and are always searching for better, more effective ways to improve the overall patient experience. This new poll reflects that.”
