LINCOLN, NE--(Marketwired - Jan 5, 2015) - Talent Plus® Science of Talent is featured in The Patient Experience Journal in an article, authored by Dr. Edgar Staren, of Cancer Treatment Centers of America and Talent Plus' Dr. Susan Hirt and Doug Rath, identifying why scientifically assessing talent and behavioral skill in physicians beyond their clinical skill set is vital to providing excellent patient care. "Just as patient-centric measurement is prompting healthcare organizations to refine their care models, physician selection processes must also be enhanced to better serve patients," stated author, Dr. Susan Hirt.

"Volume 1, Issue 2 of Patient Experience Journal continues to push our thinking on both the edges and the fundamentals of the patient experience conversation. Staren at al. touch on the heart of the matter in experience excellence, the very power of personal interactions. They help us see the value in identifying behavioral excellence, specifically as it relates to physicians and how looking beyond skills in selection can positively impact on overall performance," offered Jason Wolf, President of The Beryl Institute.

Titled, Beyond Credentialing in Physician Selection: Application of an Instrument that Measures Behavioral Aptitude, this article provides insight into why scientific selection benefits both the medical institution as a whole and the patient's they serve. -- To download this journal article for free Click Here.
