Medallia, Inc. (NYSE: MDLA), the global leader in customer and employee experience, today announced the launch of the Medallia Healthcare Payer Member Retention and Engagement Suite. The Healthcare Payer Member Retention and Engagement Suite enables insurers to engage members at key moments during the journey by gathering instantaneous feedback and insights across all channels, surfacing insights to the appropriate teams, and providing recommended actions for a better member experience.
“As it was for most businesses, the pandemic presented complex challenges for healthcare payers regarding coverage and access to care. Healthcare consumers are making decisions based on interactions with their insurers, in near real-time. This dynamic is forcing the industry to take a data-driven approach to engaging members at the right time, with the right message, via the right channel to create more valuable and trusting relationships, driving better long-term outcomes,” Steven Carleton, Vice President Customer Experience, Premera Blue Cross.
