Why CARE Matters in Healthcare

"Health plans need to take a more customer-centric approach and keep their members engaged through regular communications about programs and services available through their plan. When members perceive their plan as a trusted health partner, there is a positive impact on loyalty and advocacy"

Rick Johnson, senior director of the healthcare practice at J.D. Power
 
Six out of ten negative experiences are more likely to be remembered for longer in the provider industry compared to other industries, according to the Health Research Institute (HRI) of PwC.
