What Do Patients Expect?
However, technology and the Internet have redefined how we practice medicine and dentistry and how we communicate with and market to patients. It has been reported that 80% of patients with Internet access would like to communicate by e-mail with their health professionals.
Now patients expect the best of everything and they can evaluate healthcare practitioners and practices without leaving their computer. They can go online and view photographs of an unlimited number of medical offices and equipment; they can see the services offered; they can see the insurances accepted They can make comparisons before ever stepping foot in the building. The Internet makes it easy for people to change doctors.
In today’s economy, time is so precious. Patients don’t like coming in early to fill out forms; they don’t appreciate waiting way past their appointed time to be seen.
Patients are looking for modern and efficient practitioners who will provide better care; patients want to feel secure and comfortable; patients want the practice management to respect their time and for the doctor to take his/her time with them.
PatientStudio’s online forms address these patients’ concerns.
