SAN JOSE, Calif., March 3, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Vocera Communications, Inc. (NYSE:VCRA), the leading provider of intelligent, real-time communication solutions for healthcare and other mission-critical mobile environments, today announced that the company's thought leadership and research division, the Experience Innovation Network, will release preliminary results of its groundbreaking Chief Experience Officer (CXO) survey during a webinar on Thursday, March 5 at 1 p.m. EDT/10 a.m. PDT.
The survey is the first of its kind designed exclusively to capture the voice of senior level experience professionals at hospitals and health systems across the United States and Canada. The complimentary webinar will showcase initial data from more than 100 healthcare CXOs and senior experience executives who participated in the national Experience Innovation Network survey to help benchmark their resources and results against peers. This webinar, titled "The Evolving Role of the CXO: Creating a System Strategy," will include a panel of chief experience leaders from three diverse health systems who will share their viewpoints on the strategic priorities of a CXO and how the responsibilities of this essential role are evolving.
"As reimbursement models shift and health systems are increasingly responsible for care across the continuum, CXOs must evolve their strategy to meet the new healthcare landscape. Leading hospitals and health systems have embraced the human experience as a top strategic priority and appointed CXOs to set and lead their experience agendas," said Elizabeth Boehm, director of the Experience Innovation Network.
The panel, moderated by Boehm, includes Jeff Critchfield, MD, chief medical experience officer at San Francisco General Hospital and professor of medicine at University of California, San Francisco; Sean Keyser, vice president of patient experience at Novant Health System; and Jackie Wilson, RN, chief experience officer at Truman Medical Center.
