Articles & White-papers | Avtex Solutions, LLC
Understanding the change to the healthcare space in today’s pandemic-influenced world was paramount for healthcare providers in 2020, and even more so now in 2021 with the advent of a “patient experience” ecosystem. To solve this, Avtex Solutions, LLC launched consumer research surveys and leveraged the findings to work with me to ghostwrite a set of online articles and a white-paper to provide healthcare professionals and organizations with the key findings to be aware of including the evolution of telehealth, altered patient mindsets and behaviors, the importance of an omni-channel patient healthcare experience and more.
Website – UnitedHealthcare | Medicare Made Clear
Learning about Medicare can feel overwhelming, and with so many different pieces, we wanted to solve for consumer confusion and stress by creating a one-stop-source of information where they could quickly get the answers they need while learning at their own speed with a lead-generation goal. For this project, I worked alongside our content manager and agencies to draft the initial layout of landing page, the content, and the consumer flow with email capture as the desired conversion point. The “hub” offers resources for educating consumers, with a mix of content mediums and multiple conversion points for email signup and plan shopping.
Within three months of launch, the page saw more than 80K visitors, with social media driving 90% of the traffic and 5,000+ emails captured.
UX + Interactive – Medicare Navigator Chatbot
How do you make learning easier and on-demand for Medicare? How do you create a helpful-hand that’s simple enough for older generations to navigate? Meet Medicare Navigator.
A brand-new endeavor for me from both strategy and content, in this project responsibilities included initial project and UX brainstorming and development meetings, chatbot organization and copy flow, copy creation and editing, UX testing and copy optimizations on-going. In about 8 months, we got this project launched, and to-date have seen our goal of connecting education to shopping achieved, with most chatbot users who exit heading straight to the AARP Medicare Plans site. The bot has also increased overall site traffic, and users coming into the bot are most likely to take the next step to shop.

Disability Advocacy | With a belief that words have the power to help others, in 2013 while beginning my hearing loss journey, I launched my own blog, Hear “What?” to chronicle my own experiences. Ironically, what began as a form of digital journaling quickly transformed into a platform to share my story and the intricacies of the life of one with hearing loss and hearing aids for the world over. To this day, people of all ages and nationalities reach out to me to share their own story or express thanks, finding solace or comfort in relating to blog or two.
