Intermountain Health Selects Qualtrics to Help Advance Patient, Consumer and Employee Experience Management
Last updated: February 7, 2023
PROVO, Utah & SEATTLE (Feb. 7, 2023) – Intermountain Health has chosen Qualtrics (Nasdaq: XM), the leader and creator of the experience management category, to create world-class experiences for its patients, caregivers and all populations who interact with and consume Intermountain’s services by helping improve how it listens, understands and acts on experience data.
Intermountain is a nonprofit health system headquartered in Salt Lake City with 60,000 caregivers serving millions of patients each year. Implementation of the Qualtrics XM Platform™ is underway to enable regulatory compliance and data-driven, human-centered improvements across the organization. With an intelligent system of action in place, Intermountain will be able to collect feedback from patients and caregivers across channels in real-time and pull quantitative and qualitative insights into easy-to-use dashboards and reports that drive action.
Understanding patient and caregiver experiences is more critical today than ever before, as hospitals are working to meet demands for high-quality care amid a challenging economic climate. In an international study of 9,000 consumers, Qualtrics found 61% of patients feel that health providers need to do a better job at listening to their feedback, and 38% of health workers are at risk of burnout.
With more choices in healthcare, patients are adopting more consumer-like behaviors and seeking the best experiences in both in-person care and telehealth. Qualtrics will work with Intermountain to listen to and analyze patient feedback on their experiences with in-person and virtual care as well as with Intermountain’s website and apps, contact center calls, social media and other digital channels. If negative feedback is received, the organization will be notified immediately to intervene and course correct. Automated workflows will help ensure Intermountain can scale its ability to respond to patients quickly and effectively. Qualtrics will also help Intermountain develop its predictive analytics capabilities to anticipate patients’ needs.
“By implementing Qualtrics, we are not only expanding and improving our system for feedback, we are building a culture of action for responding to that feedback and improving the lives of all who interact with our organization,” said Intermountain Health Chief Strategy Officer Dan Liljenquist.
For caregivers, Qualtrics will expand listening across the important moments of the employee experience, such as hiring, onboarding, training, monthly pulses and exiting, to improve Intermountain’s understanding of its people on an individual level and at scale. That way, leaders can proactively target points of improvement, moments of gratitude, and make strategic plans around well-being and diversity, equity and inclusion.
“Leading healthcare institutions are listening with compassion to employees and patients, and then honoring their experiences by taking action,” said Qualtrics Chief Medical Officer Dr. Adrienne Boissy. “Rather than cutting experience resources in a time of staffing shortages and budget constraints, visionary leaders like Intermountain are implementing experience management technology across settings, data sources and functions to accelerate human insights and action at scale.”
