J.D. Power Telehealth Satisfaction Study; Consumer-Facing Telehealth Products and Platforms

Merchant Medicine is pleased to announce our partnership with J.D. Power on its first-ever consumer-facing Telehealth U.S. Satisfaction Study. Subscribers get the J.D. Power Voice of the Customer study bundled with Merchant Medicine’s custom Telehealth Market research, economics, and leading practices. Contact us to set up a time to learn more.

The Consumer Perspective. The J.D. Power U.S. Telehealth Satisfaction Study (SM) analyzes patient satisfaction with their telehealth experience and the impact it has on loyalty and advocacy. The study provides critical benchmarking information and identifies the dominant factors that drive patient satisfaction. In addition to measuring patient perceptions of their providers ability to meet their expectations, the study also provides a series of measurable and actionable Key Performance Indicators for satisfying patients.

J.D. Power’s Telehealth Satisfaction Index Model, quantifies 15 performance metrics and the relative weight each metric has on Overall Satisfaction, Advocacy and Loyalty. Net Promoter Score® benchmarking is provided as part of the study deliverables - essential to any organization wondering “what does great experience look like”. An over-sample of Telehealth Non-Users is also being collected as part of this study, seeking to quantify awareness, define why patients are not using telehealth, and understand what would increase their likelihood to use telehealth in the future.

The Market Perspective. Merchant Medicine assessed the current Telehealth Market of end-consumer facing telehealth options in the U.S., with a scope of service that could be a replacement for many common types of urgent care or retail clinic visits. Much like our industry rankings of the largest urgent care and retail clinic organizations, we created an “index” for what the biggest players look like using known market sizing information. The market is highly fragmented, with many different price points, implementation methods, modes of access, and end-consumer challenges on knowing how and when to use the technology.

This research looks at three segments: Direct-to-Consumer (“D2C”) digital product where a consumer could directly seek care; health plans (“Health Plan”) where an insurance vehicle provides a telehealth vendor solution to the member; and health systems (“Health System”) where large hospital/health system entities provide telehealth solution to the community at-large. The three deliver a replacement for an urgent care visit, but from a research methodology perspective, must be assessed separately.

Summary of Study - Organizations Included (Note: Some organizations have more than one telehealth option)

Summary of Study - Organizations Included (Note: Some organizations have more than one telehealth option)

Key Takeaway. Roughly two-thirds of the organizations we reviewed – the largest, arguably more sophisticated and better capitalized ones in the U.S. – have a consumer-facing telehealth feature that we could publicly find. However, the reality is that few of them are likely to be generating enough patient encounters to replace the typical volume of even one urgent care center. Supporting this view is the fact that multi-billion-dollar organizations have comparably few listed downloads and online reviews.

Next Steps

  • Is your organization already delivering telehealth? Where do you rank against peers on performance?

  • Are you considering adding virtual visits in the near future? Do you have a handle on the market leaders?

  • How should you price your service? Text or video mode?

  • Where and how do you integrate this service with an urgent care service line?

  • Where do you make investments for growth and align existing provider operations?

  • Are you running a vendor selection process or re-evaluating your current product(s)?

  • Are you looking for a platform selection methodology with industry data and benchmarks?

  • Do you need to better understand how consumers or patients view the service and where the opportunities are?
