Providence St. Joseph Health knows that delivering an exceptional customer experience can be a challenge for any organization. This critical task can be even more daunting for brands in the healthcare industry as patients are complex customers, seeking information on a myriad of very personal topics from wellness research to doctor’s appointments to treatments – and customized interactions are not only critical but expected.

Madelyn Mills, Director of Analytics & CRM at Providence St. Joseph Health, shared her organization’s vision and partnership with Tealium in using online and offline data to provide consistent, personalized patient interactions across digital touchpoints and channels.

  • Higher advertising costs
  • Digital waste

“A continuous partnership cross-departmentally within an organization is crucial (innovation, marketing, information systems, customer service) in creating exceptional customer experiences” – Madelyn Mills, Director, Analytics & CRM, Providence St. Joseph Health.
