Did you know that 81% of consumers are unsatisfied with their healthcare experience? This staggering statistic came out of a recent study by Prophet, which focused on helping healthcare providers gain a better understanding of the patient experience.
The study assessed the gap between patient and providers’ expectations and perceptions, which turned out to be drastically different. According to their data, 63% of healthcare providers believe they are delivering a high-quality patient experience. Yet only 40% of healthcare consumers agree.
It’s clear that healthcare organizations are not meeting patient expectations. Much of this boils down to the patient experience. In fact, 51% of patients surveyed in a study by Accenture stated they would switch providers if it meant receiving better customer service.
