Data-driven UX doubles Teachers Health online customer bases
Strategic design and build, supported with scalable and continuous improvement, has seen Deepend drive sustained growth for THF's digital channels over the last four years.
Australia's largest industry based health insurer came to Deepend with a challenge to help align a vision to move the business towards a more customer centric model. Not only to stay relevant, but also drive new growth in their physical and digital channels.
Using our strategic design process, we took a holistic view of THFs business. Balancing design-thinking-led exploration coupled with data-led insights and technical analysis to determine the human factors that would deliver improved revenue streams through greater relevance. This continuous improvement has seen us drive homogeneous growth and customer retention across the Teachers Health business.
"The vision and commitment to best in class creative, user experience and technical execution has seen us launch a new website and vision for digital channels which will enable our success for many years to come."
Using a mix of outside-in influences (qualitative research across multiple cohorts) and inside-out data analysis (quantitative log, path analysis and internal search) we re-designed and redeveloped Teachers Health primary online revenue channel to not just meet but exceed customer expectation.
We complemented this technical build by providing a range of ongoing services that ensure the same strategic design approach, coupled with data-informed optimisations, continues to drive revenue by evolving THFs offering inline with changing customer needs.
We have doubled the overall revenue raised and our focus on continuous improvement also extends to Media efficiency, improving overall conversion and value 'per visitor.'

Digital Readiness Assessment
We conducted an assessment of THF's full platform capabilities and dependencies in order to lay down the right groundwork for both integration and overall architecture. We ensure we understand technical debt and any legacy complexity that will impact our customer journey.
In our world, interoperability is the is the key to a great digital experience. We worked with IT and THF's technical partners to understand the moving components required to support the customer journey we were creating. This helps establish interoperability and integration points. Data capture, what we currently collect (and it's value) as well as other elements that might require capture to add additional value and success metrics.
Automated deployment scripts, automated testing and QA, plus a well-run sprint process ensured we moved the needle on deployments with a 35% increase in the number of monthly deployments. Furthermore, we also saw a 25% decrease in defects over a 12 month period.
Governance & Oversite
We like to ensure there are the proper mechanisms in place to ensure not only the right engineering outcome but also the best product possible and ensure there is a great solution in the market. Our governance frameworks align with THF's internal operations and are also bolstered by key technical and design leads from within Deepend.
User-centric versatility and keeping the solution simple drove the technical complexity of the application build. From separating mandatory CRM platform integrations into several more comprehendible steps, to automatically synchronising new membership applications into the HAMBs platform via secure Electronic Services Bus (ESB), development decisions were always made with the user as the key driver.
