Mayo Clinic’s James Senior: Leveraging Patient Journey Mapping for Better Healthcare Experiences

As a worldwide healthcare, research, and education institution, Mayo Clinic is a leader for exceptional patient experiences. Seeking to bridge delight and wellness, Mayo Clinic leverages journey mapping tools to move the needle in healthcare.

In the video above, James Oliver Senior shares considerations for delivering delightful patient experiences.

As James explains, there are four components used to design patient-centric experiences at Mayo Clinic:

1. Patient Journey Maps to understand different mental states across the healthcare experience

2. Behavior Mapping charts to cross-reference user state with needs

3. Multi-user schematics to map out goals across audiences

4. Mobile Wellness assessment to focus the information delivery to patients

Each area works to help Mayo Clinic empathize with users to develop the right design for their needs. Through understanding their patients on a deeper level, Mayo Clinic has been able to create experiences that are seamless, secure, accessible and enjoyable.
