Personalizing Patient Access: Finding the right provider beyond a web-search

The Patient Access strategy was initiated at Swedish Health Services approximately two years ago. The catalyst  was based on the complex and fragmented systems our patients’ face when trying to access the right provider through our 1800 phone line. Our aim was to ensure patients seeking care can seamlessly access the right provider. Over the past year, Swedish Medical Center has transformed the patient access center to create a uniquely personal experience while simultaneously doubling their conversion of inbound requests to actionable encounters. This strategy is now seen as  “best practice” for Providence Health and Services and will be implemented system-wide to ensure a consistent and predictable experience for the entire health system.
