Improve Patient Satisfaction Using Text Reminders
It’s difficult to keep track of everything that needs to be done in your office. That’s why you should use text or email reminders for appointments, order-ready or product pick-ups, recalls, and payment-due notifications. These handy tools within MaximEyes.com reduce no-shows, increase patient satisfaction, and save time and money.
Text or email reminders are simple and affordable tools that significantly affect healthcare delivery and outcomes. By using text or email reminders, you are showing that you care about your patients and their well-being.
Increase Cash Flow with Online Scheduling
Recent research shows that more than 67% of patients prefer booking appointments online, and 40% prefer booking after business hours.
To keep patients returning, appointment scheduling must be friction-free. Otherwise, your practice is at risk of losing existing patients. Difficulty with patient scheduling means you’ll also have trouble attracting and retaining new patients.
MaximEyes.com’s online scheduling allows your patients to schedule appointments at their convenience. Reduce your staff’s workload, avoid double-booking, and streamline check-in.
Paying close attention to patient scheduling will make or break your eye care business. Patients will return when you do everything you can to make them happy.
Market Your Practice Proactively with Reputation Management
Nowadays, people can easily find out what others think of your eye care business online. So you must keep an eye on your reputation and ensure your patients are happy. That’s what reputation management is all about.
Reputation management tools increase online visibility, attract customers, and build trust and loyalty. These tools use several strategies to help you analyze and establish your online presence. For instance:
- Market your practice by customizing and sending automated online surveys after their visits and collect feedback on their experience.
- Encourage them to refer their friends and family to your practice and leave positive reviews on popular platforms like Google and Facebook.
- Improve retention by contacting patients with scheduled texts and emails.
- Use robust and customizable reporting to understand patient satisfaction and reputation trends across all locations, providers, and staff.
