Answering this question can be complex and several factors need to be considered: Provider value propositions change frequently as healthcare organizations consolidate, reprioritize and implement their strategies Coordinated efforts are often needed across internal departments (marketing vs. PR vs. operations vs. patient satisfaction) to affect change Patient needs and priorities may differ depending on the clinical services sought (Oncology vs. Orthopedics vs. Pediatrics) Perception of value can also be impacted by patient demographic (age vs. gender vs. location vs. condition/disease vs. medical history and hundreds of factors) Online patient insight communities facilitate a way to truly understand your organization's perceived value by tapping into the voice of your patients in real time.
