Novant Health expands engagement with Feedtrail XM to more than 380 sites, including COVID-19 vaccine centers, to capture immediate feedback and improve processes.

RALEIGH, NC (March 25, 2021) — Feedtrail, a leading patient engagement platform, has expanded its partnership with Novant Health to prioritize patient satisfaction and education, as vaccine distribution processes continue to evolve across the nation.

Since January 2021, Novant Health’s patient experience team has been able to gain crucial visibility into experiences through Feedtrail’s experience management (XM) platform. Beyond the initial usage, the flexibility of the data gathering system allowed Novant Health to implement a two-question survey specific to each of their vaccine distribution centers and growing number of pop-up clinics in under a week. Incorporating the data in a feedback loop, Novant Health shares the real-time responses in daily huddles to improve communication, encourage team members, and help onsite providers address questions.

“We use Feedtrail across multiple care settings to deliver unique, patient-specific insights and now the post-vaccine visit surveys are adding another layer of feedback and ensuring patients that we’re listening during this critical time. Team members are hearing positive patient stories after a draining year managing the pandemic, and we’re able to implement small changes every day to enhance our vaccine procedures and communication,” says Kirsten Royster, chief experience officer at Novant Health. “We’re looking forward to continuing our partnership with Feedtrail as we use real-time patient feedback to inform experience design across the patient journey.”

Novant Health leverages the Feedtrail XM platform to ask targeted questions to patients via text about their specific experiences in settings including imaging centers, occupational medicine, urgent care, and behavioral health. Insights are integrated into Novant Health’s existing systems, enabling leadership to quickly identify and address issues for operational improvements. Establishing a direct dialogue with patients allows Novant Health to deliver personalized engagement, perform real-time service recovery, and achieve their mission to improve the health of communities, one person at a time.

“It’s fantastic we’ve been able to support Novant Health’s evolving experience management needs, especially as the patient journey has expanded to include COVID prevention and management,” said Paul Jaglowski, chief executive officer of Feedtrail. “Their team knows incorporating the voice of the patient across processes is key to exceed expectations and, ultimately, create better outcomes.”
