Listen Today! “What If Your Healthcare Provider Went Bananas – With Patient Engagement?”

In today’s 2nd part of a 4 episode series, Jason Crosby and Aaron Higgins follow up last week’s episode with a further dissection into the ‘magic’ that is the Fans First culture of the Savannah Bananas.  Specifically, how the patient experience pillar of the Triple Aim framework compares to the fan experience of the Bananas.

And thus, the patient experience and satisfaction of the experience. Aaron and Jason take a look at each step a fan takes from buying their ticket to the point of entering the gates and compares that to a patient calling to schedule an appointment to the point of waiting in the lobby. How can one learn from the other? Get your yellow tux and listen today.
