Consumers expect a better and more customized commerce experience, today, especially in healthcare and life sciences. Medical device organizations must work to understand and ease the customer journey to achieve an optimized experience and gain user trust.

Caregivers and users of medical devices want a transparent purchasing experience that guides them to the information they need to make an informed decision. Creating personas and journey maps, and utilizing and experienced third party to optimize a guided approach unlocks a seamless user experience.

Personas, Journey Maps, Guided Selling and Optimized Content Design

Urinary incontinence is one of the top reasons that older women go into long-term care. External female catheters can change these women’s lives by allowing them to live healthier and more independently in the comfort of their own home. When our medical device client released their external female catheter for at-home use, they needed a new online commerce experience to supplement their existing call center and to enable caregivers and patients to make informed decisions.

To achieve this experience, we identified the needs, motivations, and emotional states of all of our clients user groups to create user personas. We used these personas to build journey maps to show us where to incorporate the users values into their experience. Based on the customer journey, we built a best-practice guided selling experience and optimized content design.

The optimized buying journey provides an outstanding customer experience that clearly and seamlessly guides end users, caregivers, and physicians to the information they need to make an informed purchasing decision. This approach not only helps patients and caregivers determine if the product is right for them, but also helps alleviate stress on the customer service team.
