Patients as Consumers, are Changing the Health Care Industry

Companies’ investment in customer experience activities, undoubtedly increases customer satisfaction while helping to retain employees and save money in the long run. In the healthcare sector, new digital tools, as well as artificial intelligence (AI), give healthcare industry a great boost to attract, retain patients-customers and beyond.

Although information about these technologies is readily available, only 44% of businesses plan to implement customer experience-focused strategies in 2023, according to research conducted by SuperOffice.

Today’s consumers

Customer experience is not a trend, it is a requirement. Today’s consumers are increasingly accustomed to companies prioritizing convenience and experience, which leads them to have increasingly high expectations for healthcare providers.

According to Hubspot, more than 90% of service teams say customers have higher expectations than ever before and that the competence of a physician. To adopt new technologies for the convenience of patients, is now a reflection of his medical expertise and business awareness.

In addition, in addition to knowledge of competition, it is important to pay attention to existing customers.
