Customer

The customer is a non-profit organization that is on a mission to help make better health decisions since 1975. It develops searchable health content for patient education, for health insurers, and care management companies.

Business Challenge

This organization partners with hospitals, electronic medical record (EMR) providers, and health websites to provide up-to-date, evidence-based information. Its various search platforms service internal content developers, clinicians, and external clients. The company has been facing the painful challenges:

  • Outdated Search Experience: Search filters are incomplete, provide inconsistent search experience, and uncalled for ever-changing categories.
  • Content Relationship: Difficulty in finding related content, inconsistent taxonomy mapping, limited clinical relationship
  • Content Visibility: Lack of visibility in status (draft/prod) and content type (text, image, video)

The company’s executives sought to replace its search platforms with a new unified system supporting self-service health content inventory search and discovery to elevate customer experience and improve business efficiency.
