About Cast & Hue

We help hospitals, healthcare organizations, and care facilities develop a deeper understanding of their patients, customers, and their families, and how they are navigating the healthcare decision-making journey. All of our human-centered solutions are custom-designed based on our clients’ objectives, answering questions such as:

  • How might we better understand our customers and potential customers based on their motivations and intent?
  • How might we ensure that we are at the top of the consideration set when members of our community are deciding where to reside?
  • How might we better understand the points at which our experience is not meeting customer expectations?
  • How might we design improved experiences that lead to improved loyalty, advocacy and satisfaction?
  • How might we bring world-class innovation to our organization on an accelerated timeline?
  • How might we develop an environment where we can gain alignment and collaboration across the silos in our organization?
