Qualtrics Expands Healthcare Leadership Team With Hiring of Cleveland Clinic Veteran Dr. Adrienne Boissy
Qualtrics , the leader and creator of the Experience Management (XM) category, has named Dr. Adrienne Boissy as its first Chief Medical Officer expanding the company’s ability to help industries, including healthcare institutions, deliver exceptional experiences for patients, customers and employees. Dr. Boissy is a practicing neurologist and global thought leader who was most recently Chief Experience Officer at the Cleveland Clinic.
Dr. Boissy’s appointment comes at a critical time. The pandemic has catalyzed digital innovation across industries, while generating staffing, mental health and access challenges. People want to engage with their care teams and organizations through the channels they prefer—helping them feel known as a person, and to have seamless and customized experiences. To differentiate in a new virtual environment and earn loyalty, patient and employee experience is top of mind for many healthcare organizations, and most are looking for creative, timely and customized methods to listen and respond to the customer voice.

Transforming the patient and employee experience
Traditional patient experience platforms are retrospective, static, long and focus on measurement instead of action. They also don’t take into consideration the emotion and values of the patient or employee. Qualtrics is helping over 400 hospitals and health systems around the world, including CHRISTUS Health, Intermountain Healthcare and Stanford Health Care, modernize their patient and employee experience programs—reducing the time and cost it takes to listen and understand patient needs, and using those insights to improve patient outcomes, retention and service recovery.
Qualtrics healthcare solutions are built on the Qualtrics XM Platform™, which maintains the highest security certifications, including ISO 27001, FedRAMP and HITRUST. This means its technology platform provides customers the tools they need to manage HIPAA compliance.
