Changing economic and demographic characteristics are affecting the healthcare needs of patients worldwide. For healthcare companies, patient satisfaction is likely to become an increasingly important source of competitive advantage. The key to patient engagement and satisfaction is identifying gaps in offerings and delivering exceptional customer service. As such, healthcare companies worldwide are focusing on understanding how patients interact with a hospital or health system throughout their care journey. This is where patient journey mapping comes into play. By leveraging patient journey mapping solution, healthcare companies can identify gaps that may hinder their relationship-building during preclinical phases, create personalized experiences for each patient, and unlock opportunities to improve pre and post-clinical patient engagement.

Our Integrated Approach
The experts at Infiniti Research followed a detailed approach to patient journey mapping.
We began with comprehensive patient journey mapping for different diagnostic services. We also had in-depth interviews with internal team members to identify bottlenecks. Besides, open-ended interviews with patients and their relatives were conducted to identify patients’ pain points.
The next phase of the patient journey mapping engagement involved following data collection methods such as one-on-one patient and one-on-one staff interviews to help the client understand their patients’ thoughts, feelings, and actions when they interact with the health system.
The next phase involved gathering internal patient satisfaction survey data to understand patient behavior throughout every stage of their care journey. This phase of the engagement also involved using the patient experience survey data to identify patients’ pain points.
The final phase of the engagement involved making a list of the high-volume services that have a significant impact on the client’s bottom line. Besides, deep-dive secondary research by seasoned analysts was conducted to gather available information and insights. Also, validation of market data and study results with market experts and independent consultants were conducted.
