This paper aims to audit the patient satisfaction literature, precisely survey methods used, which fundamentally analyses its hypothesis and use at that point to introduce proof for perceived service quality as a discrete and further advanced construct. Findings Patient satisfaction has been widely reviewed and significant efforts have gone into creating survey instruments to estimate it. Although, most surveys have been critical of its utilization, since there is seldomly any hypothetical or calculated development of the patient satisfaction theory. The construct has little normalization, low accuracy and undetermined validity. It keeps on being utilized interchangeably with, and as an intermediary for, perceived health service quality, which is a conceptually extraordinary and predominant construct. Practical Implications The persistent utilization of patient satisfaction to assess the patients perception of the quality of a healthcare service is truly flawed. The way to settling this dilemma might be for the healthcare division to concentrate on perceived healthcare service quality by considering the particular theories and models that can be found in the administrations advertising literature. This literature offers further developed consumer theories which are preferred differentiated and tried over existing healthcare satisfaction models. Conclusion This paper brings up that there is a critical requirement for differentiation and normalization of patient satisfaction and healthcare service quality definitions and constructs, and argues for examination to concentrate on estimating perceived healthcare service quality.
