  4. 4. HealthUnlocked | GP Communities Why do we need it? A recent Pulse Magazine article reported... “GP practices are confused and overburdened with paperwork as they struggle to meet the terms of the patient participation DES...” “We recently held a meeting of over 50 practice managers and the feedback was that people didnt know where to start with the patient survey.” - PULSE 18 August 2011 © 2011 HealthUnlocked
  5. 5. HealthUnlocked | GP Communities Why not use Facebook? or Twitter or SurveyMonkey... ➡ It’s a fragmented approach: it would require patients to use 2 to 3 different tools that were not designed to work together ➡ It’s time inefficient: surgeries will spend a significant amount time trying to create ways to integrate the various tools ➡ It simply won’t work- social media tools do not provide demographic data or other needed information for the DES © 2011 HealthUnlocked
  6. 6. HealthUnlocked | GP Communities Why the GP Communities work... ✓ The GP Communities were designed by a practice manager for practices ✓ They were designed to interact with patients and painlessly meet the requirements of the DES ✓ They are easy to use. The average age of a user in a similar HU product is 48 - it’s not just for kids ✓ It is time efficient and therefore cost efficient © 2011 HealthUnlocked
