Tech Trend: User Experience improves Patient Experience
There has been a continuous effort to improve and modernize healthcare system that brings a high degree of satisfaction in patients’ expectations. With the growing competition in healthcare sector and with the patients switching their loyalties to other providers due to an unsatisfactory experience, it becomes important for the healthcare organizations to realize the implications of a user-centric service design. The focus now in the current Healthcare sector is on how to Improve Patients’ Experience by designing and utilizing better UX principles.

Improved patient satisfaction is directly related to revenue generation and profitability of the hospitals. Healthcare providers with consistently high levels of patient satisfaction are among the most fiscally successful with reduced malpractice claims and increased patient volume. Numerous studies confirm that satisfied patients are loyal patients. They are more likely to return to the same provider for future medical care and also refer other patients to the same provider. Therefore, the providers who have recognized the value of a satisfied patient are enjoying a lifetime loyalties from them and an enhanced profitability.

Therefore, the focus should be on designing principles that not only meet users’ expectations but exceed them. Healthcare providers in the US are obtaining new approaches to redesign the healthcare system in order to truly meet the needs of the patients and making healthcare services better for them and their families. Saviance uses the SMART Framework to give maximum advantage to our clients through the key principles of UXD.
