Market Report

One of the most frequent topics of conversation in healthcare today, and often somewhat controversial depending on who you are speaking with, is the notion of improving the customer experience (CX). For some, perhaps it’s just top of mind given the number of traditionally customer-centric companies trying to pave a new path forward in healthcare including Walmart, Amazon, and CVS. But for those of us who have grown up in healthcare, we know this conversation isn’t new. Read more…

We are proud to announce that Merchant Medicine has partnered for a third year with the Urgent Care Association (UCA) on the annual Urgent Care Benchmark Report. Merchant Medicine’s proprietary industry rankings for Private and Hospital Affiliated Urgent Care Operators, Retail Clinics, Digital Audit and Saturation Index are included in the report.

Purchase the Benchmarking Report here. We have worked closely with numerous clients to increase the number of hospital-affiliated contributors, and roughly doubled the number of units in the most recent study. The report provides over 200 different benchmarks with trended data.

J.D. Power 2019 Telehealth Study


Merchant Medicine has worked with J.D. Power to help create the first-ever national Voice of the Customer study around consumer telehealth. Much like our national Urgent Care and Retail Clinic rankings, we have built a volume market sizing design. This new insight into the sector from a patient-driven perspective is long overdue.

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. In total, 30 direct to consumer providers, health insurers and health systems will be publicly ranked, with a J.D. Power award presented to the organization that ranks highest in patient satisfaction within each segment.

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. The 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 will also be provided as part of the study.
