Even before the pandemic, there was a growing demand from patients for more digital solutions to simplify the healthcare journey. COVID-19 blew open the digital front door and underscored the value of real-time digital communications and location-aware technologies in meeting communities’ immediate health needs, addressing residents’ fears and managing patient flow. Now, connecting an organization’s consumer-facing digital touchpoints has become key to optimizing the patient experience as well as revenue.
Piedmont Healthcare was no stranger to digital strategy before the pandemic. In 2017, the health system launched a system-branded mobile platform with advanced features such as the ability to access urgent care and emergency department wait times, initiate virtual visits, schedule appointments, find a physician, pay their medical bills, and more. Within two years, Piedmont had 50,000 mobile downloads. It also boasted a 30% click-to-fulfillment rate for online scheduling of appointments, with 26% of online scheduled patients new to the system. When COVID-19 emerged, leaders used the lessons they had learned to make the most of their mobile platform. They leveraged the platform to inform residents of new protocols, share information regarding COVID testing, deploy video visits via MyChart, and enable consumers to schedule vaccine appointments.
For healthcare organizations, developing the right digital offering presents a strong opportunity for growth and competitive positioning. In this session, leaders from Piedmont Healthcare will explore strategies they used for creating a seamless digital experience for patients and the keys to developing a tightly integrated, hassle-free digital health platform, including ways to assess the ROI of digital front door initiatives.
