Tanner Health and Healthliant Ventures Partner With Care Sherpa

Tanner Health, Healthliant Ventures and Care Sherpa announced they have entered into an agreement for Tanner to deploy Care Sherpa’s lead management platform, a combination of software, services and strategy that supports and elevates patient engagement so that Tanner Health’s patients and potential patients enjoy improved personalized customer service.

The Care Sherpa platform guides healthcare providers to increased volumes and predictive revenue growth – managing the patient lead pipeline with highly personalized consumer follow up and patient support services.

Care Sherpa will help guide patients and consumers by using high-touch relationship services, including:

  • Facilitated Care: Supports a single point of contact to engage and manage consumers through the conversion-to-patient experience.
  • Service Line Consumer Management: Provides patients and consumers with personalized support and guidance throughout the conversion process to meet their individual needs.
  • Lapsed Patient Reactivation: Engages and reactivates consumers who may have previously shown interest, but who have not yet become patients.
  • ·Relationship Expansion: Supports patients and consumers with recommendations for additional health services that best meet their needs.
  • Service Recovery: Provides retention support and recovery when the patient experience does not meet expectations, as well as issue resolution and follow up to ensure needs are met.

Tanner Health will use Care Sherpa to provide patients and potential patients with comprehensive patient care based on deep analysis and personalized customer service — both informed by Tanner Health’s and Care Sherpa’s decades of experience in the healthcare industry and patient care.

“Tanner Health is looking forward to implementing Care Sherpa to establish stronger relationships between our patients and their providers,” said Kelly Meigs, vice president of marketing strategy and planning at Tanner Health. “Our goal is to use Care Sherpa to make it easier than ever for patients to get the care that they need without delays. Care Sherpa helps providers maximize patients’ customer experience by guiding them from first contact through any needed tests and treatments in a timely manner.”

“We are thrilled to partner with Tanner Health to build demonstrable value for their healthcare providers by personalizing the patient relationship and optimizing healthcare revenue by providing an outsourced conversion and patient management services,” said Jessica Walker, founder and CEO of Care Sherpa. “Care Sherpa believes that patient experiences matter, and they remember how you make them feel.”
