Case Study: Quality Enhances Customer Experience
How implementing a Quality Management System helped a Brand team improve benefit verification accuracy by 4.8% in 2 months.
Manufacturer’s Brand and Field Force seeking an enhanced customer experience.
Asked if current HUB performance could be improved through quality of work (output).
Hired Archbow to create a comprehensive end-to-end quality assessment for their current HUB Patient Support Services.
Archbow conducted an analysis of the benefit verification (BV) end-to-end process, including the current quality framework.
The assessment revealed that the HUB did not have an effective quality plan or a Quality Management System (QMS) in place that was designed to align with key customer, business, and compliance drivers. Nor were they monitoring the voice of the customer (VOC).
Implemented a QMS that focused on improving the areas of quality of output (zero defects), reducing variation, and driving reliability that supported two levels of monitoring: agent and business.
Created performance metrics that aligned to the customer’s program business rules, were fact-based, and grounded in solid measurements to allow for insights and actionable results.
Built a continuous process improvement framework based on Six Sigma principles to identify on-going value for the Patient Support Service program.
Implemented month-over-month BV quality trending reports to drive improvements.
BV accuracy results improved by 4.8% within two months of monitoring.
Brand and Field Force customers (VOC) saw significant improvement in the accuracy of their BVs.
