The Consumerization of Patient Engagement

The Consumerization of Patient Engagement

Consumers see personalized experiences, digital channels, and easily accessible answers when they interact with corporations. Healthcare providers can provide a more modern experience when they give patients the same treatment.

Businesses in every sector are improving customer experience (CX) every day, making interactions more convenient and personalized. Healthcare providers can jump to the top of patient satisfaction by applying lessons learned from the consumer market.

In today’s tech-filled, customer-focused world consumers expect businesses to provide self-service solutions to most straightforward problems. Customer service has quickly emerged as a key battleground for differentiation between companies. As we all get used to fast, digital solutions in our consumer interactions, our modern culture will begin to expect the same level of automation and digitization from our healthcare.

Innovative and forward-looking organizations will join the patient satisfaction movement as soon as possible. Happier patients turn into more loyal patients and recommend providers to those around them. As providers begin to adopt modern patient experiences, they’ll see their patient retention and new patient onboarding increase as well.

On-Demand Service

The Microsoft State of Global Customer ServiceReportfound a vast majority (88%) of consumers expect brands to provide self-service solutions for customer support. The public overwhelmingly craves self-service answers and there’s no question why. Our modern world has created a culture that expects solutions on-demand, at the tap of a button. TheOn-Demand Economyprovides rides instantly, wherever we are, gives us a place to stay when we get there, and can have dinner delivered from any restaurant right to our door when we get hungry.

That demand for immediate convenience has permeated dozens of experiences in our day to day lives. Healthcare providers that focus on meeting patients where they are with information and personalized service will quickly rise to the top of patient satisfaction. Providing answers digitally and instantly through smartphones and other digital devices creates the kind of accessible, on-demand service our modern culture expects from businesses. Consumerizing healthcare will help providers stay connected to patients and improve their satisfaction.
