Los Angeles, CA — Huge thanks to all of you who have reached out to check in on the very quiet Health Experience Project over the last few weeks. The good news is: We’re back. Even better, we’ve got a new approach to share.

A little over a month ago, the team got together to talk about what’s working and what’s not on HxP. As we looked into the data, we found that the content you like most was actually the deepest. Readers like you are most likely to spend time with our detailed trend presentations (like this post on sales reps) and the deep dives into shifts in expectations and technology (like this article on Doximity or this one about digital caregivers). We know, too, that you’re most likely to share great images and moments (like this original illustration from David Wink or this video on a children’s cancer ward transformed by super heroes).

We’re refocusing HxP to give you more of what you want. We’re still committed to understanding what kinds of experiences can create better health outcomes and more personal success stories for doctors and patients alike. But, we’ll be delivering it in more in-depth pieces, ready to be downloaded, shared and used in your daily work. We’ll also be collecting more shareworthy stories – in words, images, and videos – to fuel the conversations you’re having with colleagues about just how to crack the code on getting more people to choose better health.

We’ll be posting a little less often, but each post will be worth the wait.

In the next two weeks, look for two new trend reports that define what consumers want and how marketers will engage in 2014 and a really eye-opening interview with one of our favorite experts on health literacy.

We appreciate all that good data on what you’re most interested in, but we’d like to hear directly from you, too. What else would you change to make HxP more valuable to you and your team? What topics would you like us to cover; which experts would you like hear from? Email us or leave your suggestions in the comments.
