QRCA Annual Conference 2015

QRCA Annual Conference, 2015

Ellen Koronet of LNK Creative presented her expert perspective on “Game-ification” within the purview of Qualitative Research. Ellen offered a powerful case study of a game-ified Customer Journey Mapping process she designed for a multi-billion dollar insurance provider serving Medicaid markets. The techniques Ellen designed and implemented cut through these particular customers’ personal and cultural reticence. LNK Creative’s innovative focus group methodologies provided a unique view into the decision process to help the organization meet these customers at heart and provide better access to healthcare designed for them.
