The Service Delivery Assessment survey is vital to patient care.
Patient feedback through the SDA, a centralized telephone survey program provides Air Force clinics with direct, rapid and relevant feedback from their patients vital to national security. The weekly report allows AF clinics to quickly take corrective action in areas where there are shortcomings or improvement needs. The survey selection is random, typically takes less than five minutes and complete patient privacy is maintained. Should you receive a call from the SDA office we hope that you will participate in the survey.
