Winston-Salem, N.C. - The American Board of Dermatology (ABD) has given provisional approval for U.S. dermatologists to use the DrScore.com online patient satisfaction survey for collecting and reporting patient feedback, BusinessWire.com reports.

DrScore, a recognized online patient-satisfaction survey service, provides doctors way to meet the patient experience-of-care survey requirement and obtain actionable patient feedback.

BusinessWire.com quotes DrScore founder and CEO Steven R. Feldman, M.D., a dermatologist practicing at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center, as saying, “Receiving the ABD’s approval means that doctors now have the tool they need, a survey that gives doctors the feedback to focus on exceptional patient-centered care and to document that care for maintenance of board-certification.”

The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality has included the DrScore instrument in its clearinghouse of approved measures. DrScore has published numerous studies on the effectiveness and use of the survey in peer-reviewed medical publications, identifying key factors essential to achieving high levels of patient satisfaction.
