SAINT LOUIS (Oct. 8, 2018) – Perficient, Inc. (NASDAQ: PRFT) (“Perficient”), the leading digital transformation consulting firm serving Global 2000® and other large enterprise customers throughout North America, today announced that its agency, Perficient Digital, has received the 2018 Sitecore Experience Award for its best-in-class use of Sitecore as a Digital Experience Platform. The Sitecore Experience Award, announced in advance of the Sitecore Symposium 2018, recognizes Perficient Digital’s delivery of customer-centric digital environments for its client Dignity Health, one of the nation’s largest healthcare systems with 40 hospitals in Arizona, California, and Nevada. Together, Perficient Digital and Dignity Health have partnered to engage each consumer and patient to streamline both patient and provider experiences.
As consumers’ expectations for convenient digital access continue to rise, so has the importance of delivering personalized, frictionless experiences. Today’s healthcare organizations are no exception to this demand and need to deliver positive experiences across the entire patient care journey from initial engagement to treatment and long-term preventive care to help optimize clinical outcomes.
“To carry out their mission to increase access to high-quality, affordable patient-centered care, Dignity Health is continuously looking for the latest innovations to help transform the way it interacts with consumers and patients,” said Stephen Tynes, principal of Perficient's Customer Experience Platforms practice. “In leveraging the Sitecore Experience Platform, we’ve ensured Dignity Health continues to have the right technologies and systems in place to deliver engaging, contextual, and personalized experiences for all.”
Using Sitecore XP, Dignity Health and Perficient built a “Find a Doctor” website that allows consumers to find providers and schedule appointments easily. In addition, by coupling Sitecore with an identity management solution, the team launched the My Home web experience, which allows patients to build their health team, map relevant locations, pay bills, schedule appointments, request prescription refills, access clinical information, and securely message with their provider – all in one place.
“Patient engagement is a top priority for Dignity Health and our consumer-centric My Home web experience increases patients’ access to quality healthcare on an ongoing basis. Through our partnership with Perficient, we’ve empowered our patients to take ownership of their health journey, and increased the efficiency of the entire care journey for our physicians and our network,” said Michael Seagraves, senior director, Digital Strategy and Operations, Dignity Health.
“We’re proud to be a trusted partner to Dignity Health and are thankful for this recognition from Sitecore,” continued Tynes. “Dignity Health set out to create an experience that further enabled them to connect with their patients, where, when, and how they prefer. In drawing upon our deep understanding of the healthcare industry and coupling that with our extensive technical capabilities within the Sitecore and Microsoft technology stacks, we were able to deliver a solution that provides relevant information and content when and where their patients prefer. Dignity Health continues to innovate in the overall delivery of care, and, as a result, continues to improve patient outcomes.”
