“Expanding Boundaries. Removing Barriers.” - Six Takeaways from ATLAS 2019

 

Earlier this week we were fortunate to host some of the country’s pre-eminent thought leaders at what was our sixth Annual Thought Leadership on Access Symposium (ATLAS). This year’s theme was “Expanding Boundaries. Removing Barriers.” “Expanding Boundaries” let us explore inspiring ways health system leaders are innovating around patient access and responding to industry dynamics, which increasingly point to a shift in care delivery outside of the walls of health systems.

Putting Providers at the Forefront of Access: Learnings from Prisma Health

With consumers increasingly turning to the web to search for care, enhancing their digital presence is a key priority for many health systems. This was particularly important for newly-formed Prisma Health (formerly Greenville Health System and Palmetto Health), who, though not new to healthcare, was a new brand to consumers. On our recent webinar, “Putting Providers at the Forefront of Access,” Prisma Chief Digital Officer, Dr. Nick Patel, spoke with Kyruus CEO and Co-Founder, Dr. Graham Gardner, about their initiative to transform patient access online and how they engaged providers in the process.

The Importance of Clinical Engagement in Access Initiatives: A Provider’s Perspective

It is becoming increasingly clear: patients want better access to care and more convenient options. Even though healthcare has traditionally been far behind digital advancements, especially compared to the retail and service industries, health systems are waking up. However, while the majority of their efforts have been focused on the consumer and meeting their expectations, for organizations to truly differentiate their digital front door, they must listen to the voice of their providers and engage them in the process.

Building A Modern Consumer Scheduling Experience

More than 2/3 of consumers would choose a provider based on the ability to book appointments online.1 To meet this growing demand, health systems are searching for ways to offer patients the same level of convenience and choice they’ve grown accustomed to when booking appointments online in other industries.

4 Steps to Make Online Scheduling a Reality at Your Health System

In a recent study, over 2/3 of patients reported that they are more likely to choose providers who offer the ability to book appointments online.1 And while health systems recognize this demand and see the clear benefits to offering online scheduling, developing an effective strategy is easier said than done. In fact, on our recent webinar, Katie Logan, VP of Experience at Piedmont Healthcare, acknowledged that their first run at implementing online scheduling didn’t produce the results they had wanted. Achieving the positive impact–on their business and their patients–they’ve seen with online scheduling today required Piedmont to take a new approach, one that put the patient and their journey at the center.

Watch the Piedmont Booking Experience Yourself

As technology becomes increasingly involved in all aspects of our lives, today’s patients are looking to interact with health systems in new ways, whether it’s communicating with a provider via video or booking their next appointment online. And while ⅔ of patients are more likely to choose a provider with online scheduling, according to a recent study, few organizations offer the modern digital capabilities patients have come to expect from their healthcare experience.1

Intrinsic and Extrinsic Physician Motivators to Consider When Driving Change

This is a guest blog post from Dr. Nancy Gagliano, Chief Medical Officer at Culbert Healthcare Solutions.

In an era of increasing physician burnout, it is critical to understand core motivators that affect physician satisfaction.12 We all have intrinsic and extrinsic motivators that contribute to job satisfaction. Intrinsic motivators for physicians are the “Why I went to medical school,” while extrinsic motivators include factors such as autonomy, resources, leadership, community, and appreciation. While many may think a “full waiting room” is a sufficient motivator for physicians, understanding what truly motivates physicians is essential to developing a roadmap to improve their satisfaction.
