GOOGLE YOUR NAMEGo on Google and “Google Your Name”What comes up?Are the “reviews” that come up representative of who you are as a doctor or organization?Why do “they” claim ownership over your name? Your Career? Your Goals?
APPOINTMENT SCHEDULING PROCESSPatient goes online (80% of U.S. Population)Searches for “specialist” and locationLooks over only those doctors with websitesVerifies via content on those websites whether in fact the doctor’s expertise pertains to their medical needsThe patient makes a decision to find out more about their top 2-3 choices …
What happens if you don’t have a website? NOTHING HAPPENSAnd most importantly you’re completely defenseless ONE bad comment WILL ruin your reputation
It’s 2012. Who doesn’t have a website? Can‘t Afford one? Seriously?$300 bucks/mo gets you a great online presence Thousands of companies offer the same price
SO BACK ON GOOGLEWhat’s Relevant & Important at this point? #1 - Patient Review Sites #2 – Social Media Presence What do both have in common? They are the patient’s background check.
EXAMPLESHow one review can spell disaster for getting new patient volumesCould this review have been prevented if the doctor asked for feedback during the follow up?
Example #2 – (Nationally recognized Hospital) Celebrates all their doctors and their sub-expertise When you Google most of these doctors you get this: Are 10 surveys from 2008 (that’s 4 years ago) representative of the doctors’ several thousand procedures?
One bad review leads to “group mentality” What if that March review was never posted and was handledin real-time at the followup visit? Would others not join the “gang”
Same Doctor … Another review… Is it Credible? What kind of credibility does this have? Could it be an office staff member? How do you know it’s a true review?
It’s NOT just about POSITIVE ReviewsIt’s about a positive patient experience, every time.If EVERY patient gets your iPad to write a comment when they come in for the next visit or follow up after surgery you have the opportunity to ask the patient a very important question …“Please tell us about your experience. It really matters to us that each patient gets the best treatment possible”
… the little things that matter “Rude receptionist …” “Doctor did not talk to me …” “The office looks awful and smells like a rotten egg” Can these things be addressed and corrected rightthere on the spot as they happen? Before they are ever published?
The Goal“My Doctor listens to me. He cares about my needs.”
Form a new HabitAsk for Feedback every time …and have the right technology available to control what happens … in real time… as it happens!
