Technology's Role in the Patient Experience Imperative
Several years ago I wrote about how an organization's Web site could improve the patient experience. Back then, making it easy to find phone numbers, directions, and other info on the site, creating doctor directories with profiles, photos, and video interviews, and perhaps offering some health-related content seemed advanced. Today it seems quaint.
In our most recent Intelligence Report, The New Patient Experience Imperative, we polled leaders at healthcare organizations to learn about their online strategies. The results, to say the least, were mixed. Some organizations are using advanced online tactics. But it seems like more are still pinning their patient experience hopes on outdated models.
