Essential Guide to Digital Patient Experience Transformation

5 fundamental steps to accelerate digital PX innovation

Essential Guide to Digital Patient Experience Transformation


Prior to COVID-19, leading healthcare organizations had taken steps to digitalize patient experience (PX). But the pandemic catapulted “digital transformation” from boardroom buzzword to industry imperative. As patients, caregivers, and healthcare leaders align on a new normal—where telehealth is flourishing and consumer platforms like Google My Business are lifelines for communication—organizations that lack a robust, well-defined digital transformation strategy will lose ground to consumer-focused competitors.   


Today, digital transformation is vital for healthcare leaders looking to drive patient satisfaction, retention, and loyalty. Patients evaluate the full spectrum of their experience, not just the episode of care. But 50% encounter friction before they even see a doctor. Delivering world-class PX hinges on continually collecting patient feedback, measuring sentiment, and improving every step of the patient journey—and thereby improving the overall quality of care. Digital transformation is a key building block of this new patient experience, helping healthcare organizations understand patient behaviors, expectations, wants, and needs like never before.



What Is Patient Experience?

Today, "patient experience” has taken a much broader definition. While historically patient experience was thought of as what happens inside your walls, organizations must view true PX more holistically, including what happens before and after an episode of care.
