You may be overwhelmed by all the analytics-speak I've bombarded you with. If you are, I don't blame you. We've covered a lot of potential solutions to create a more consumer-centric healthcare system. Let's reflect back on all the ideas we've discussed.
We started by discovering issues within the system through the eyes of the consumers: What are their experiences like? What are their thoughts of the system?

The experience blueprint helped us to better understand patient experiences across the entire continuum of care, including their needs, feelings, and thoughts at each step of the way.
