Improving access, experience and outcomes with tech + human ingenuity.

Humanizing Healthcare

We help our clients meet the essential expectations that every person has of the healthcare system: access, experience and outcomes.

People need access to convenient, equitable and affordable care no matter where they live. In this era of personalized and convenient service in industries such as banking or retail, people expect a similar experience from healthcare. This is why 92% of health executives rank delivering a highly personalized experience as a top strategic priority1. Improving health access and experience contributes directly to better care, which will ultimately yield more positive outcomes.

We help our clients address these critical imperatives through intelligent, cloud-based solutions that increase resource capacity, improve workforce productivity, connect data for personalized services across channels, and improve the quality of care and therapeutics.

Together with the world's leading healthcare payers, providers and public health entities, we are putting humans at the true center of care to improve healthcare experiences for all.

Health and Life Sciences Experience survey

Has healthcare maintained the gains made during the global pandemic? The 2021 Accenture Health and Life Sciences Experience Survey of nearly 1,800 people in the US reveals how patients’ experience of healthcare is changing. Healthcare showed remarkable strength in the past year—in fact, 26% of those we surveyed said their access to healthcare improved since the pandemic started. Digital adoption ballooned as care providers switched to virtual care. Yet more than a quarter of our respondents did not use any digital technologies to manage their health in the last year.

Growth in digital health adoption had actually stalled before COVID-19. With a few important exceptions, this year's data seems to indicate that we're still on the plateau. Rather than engaging in business as usual, healthcare and life sciences companies must combine the power of technology and human ingenuity to improve digital adoption, experiences and trust in this new era.
