How Social Media can Help your Medical Practice Get More Clients

How Social Media can Help your Medical Practice Get More Clients | Health Technology Revolution | Scoop.it

Most medical practice websites today rely on some form of social networking or social media marketing to help their company reach strategic goals. Social media websites do an excellent job at sorting their users into smaller networks. It makes your job of targeting them much easier with your message. This article will discuss the powerful concepts behind social media marketing.

 

You must first understand what a social media website is before you can truly utilize the features that it brings to the table. All social media sites require you to create a personal profile. You will use this profile as your business card when encountering the rest of the world. Sites like YouTube focus on user-published content and grouping users that find the same content relevant, engaging or entertaining.

 

Social media allows medical practices to spend less money on securing a place for their content or advertisement. They can put their saved money into producing quality advertisements instead. The networks and media will handle most of the marketing for you if it is a well-designed piece of content.

 

Social media has a variety of popular sites and strategies. It is best to choose social media sites that have a substantial user-base. Each different site will have its own strengths, features, and audiences that you can utilize. Start by listing the different sites used most often and finding out if your clients use them.

 

As long as you can produce excellent content, you can easily incorporate social media into your medical marketing strategies. It may begin as simple as a bookmark, favicon, or embedded video, but it will get your practice exposed to the public. The traffic will begin following close behind. The further your video spirals through your client’s friends list, emails, and social networks that you target, the more people will become exposed to its content.

 

If your media catches on once, don’t let it stop. You should post your content on a regular schedule. When your posts catch on over a period of time, potential clients will want to know when they can expect your content. When certain content makes noticeable changes on your practice, find out what the clients liked or disliked about the content. Alter your strategy when it doesn’t work.

 

There are many potential clients looking for answers. Apply the tips above and return with the content that answers their needs.

5 Mobile Health Apps account for 15% of all downloads

5 Mobile Health Apps account for 15% of all downloads | Health Technology Revolution | Scoop.it

Over 50% Of Mobile Health Apps Are Downloaded Less Than 500 Times according to a new report on mobile health apps by IMS Institute for Healthcare Informatics 

 

Some of the other results of the recent study included these:

 

 Of the 43,000+ mobile health apps assessed for the report – only 23,682 were classified with a legitimate health function
5 apps accounted for 15% of all downloads
16,275 were considered patient facing
7,407 were considered provider facing
Smartphone use is lowest (18%) in the 65+ demographic
More than 90% of the apps tested scored less than 40 on a scale of 100
Apps were further categorized by 7 capabilities:– Inform (10,840 apps)
– Instruct (5,823 apps)
– Record/Capture data (5,095 apps)
– Display User entered data
– Guide
– Remind/Alert (1,357 apps)
– Communicate
– None of the 7 capabilities (1,622 apps)

The apps themselves were scored across 25 different criteria – with the following functionality:

 

These criteria include, but are not limited to, the type and quantity of information provided by the app, how the app tracks or captures user data, the communication processes utilized by the app, and the quantity of device capabilities included in the app. In addition to looking at this result, weightings are applied specific to the category of the app. For example, in a condition management app there will be a higher value placed on results that focus on doctor communications than there would be for a reference app.


This scoring system was used for all consumer oriented healthcare apps with at least one assessed level of functionality , and confirmed that the majority of apps have only simple functionality. This scoring system is based on our independent and objective assessment of the app functionality and does not reflect patient/user evaluation, physician evaluation, or evidence that users benefit from their use from an outcomes perspective


- IMS Institute for Healthcare Informatics Report:Patient Apps for Improved Healthcare (October, 2013)


In order for healthcare apps “to move from novelty to mainstream,” the report highlighted four areas that need to be addressed:

*  Evidence of clinical efficacy needs to be both outcomes and cost based for payers and providers to support and endorse patient use
*  Robust security and privacy assurances (and liability)
*  Apps need some level of curation for healthcare professionals to recommend
*  Integration with other parts of patient care – including personal and electronic health records as well as patient portals

Medical Marketing on Pinterest: The Safest Place to Start Health Care Social Media

Medical Marketing on Pinterest: The Safest Place to Start Health Care Social Media | Health Technology Revolution | Scoop.it

LET’S FACE IT, YOU’RE SCARED

Health care companies are not getting involved in Social Media because they’re scared. If you look at the hoops medical marketing directors have to jump through with their legal department, and then combine that with the pressures all marketers face, such as justifying marketing spend, it’s no wonder health care companies have chosen to stay on the sidelines.

 

START WITH PINTEREST

Many businesses are finding that it’s possible to engage with patients, customers, and other stakeholders without running into legal problems. If you’re still feeling hesitant, that’s okay. Take one step at a time. Not ready for all of the conversational aspects of Facebook? Try a less conversational network. Here’s where Pinterest comes in.

 

JOIN THE TOP BRANDS

According to Simply Measured, 69 of the world’s top 100 brands are on Pinterest. Pinterest is driving more traffic to websites and blogs than Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+, or YouTube.

 

WHAT YOU HAVE TO GAIN

You can also gain positive brand exposure when people see pins about your company, the people who work there, and the products and services that are changing lives.

 

You can teach patients about a new product you are launching so they understand how it works and how it benefits them.

 

Give patients a look inside your company and what makes your organization great. This is an opportunity for you to humanize your company. After all, your team probably got involved in health care because at least some part of you wanted to make a difference in people’s lives.

 

Now is your chance to show consumers the side of your company that feels their emotions, shares their desire to find the cure, wants to effectively treat a medical condition, dreams of ending suffering, and will do whatever it takes to save lives.

 

Driving referral traffic to a website from Pinterest is incredibly valuable for medical marketing. Why? This is a golden opportunity for health care marketers to ride the social wave without getting tangled in the legal complication. You get the benefits of social media: brand exposure and awareness, positive corporate PR, patient education, exposure for new product launches, and referral traffic to your health care website without the risks that are inherent in the more conversational social networks.

 

LOW RISK INVESTMENT

Pinterest is primarily a visual network. People look at images, share images, pin images, like images, and on occasion, maybe comment on an image. But Pinterest is no Facebook. Facebook is the water cooler where people really start talking about things. When people start talking, legal and regulatory departments get nervous. Breathe a sigh of relief. People don’t usually get too involved in conversations on Pinterest. Many people have probably never commented on a pin in their whole Pinterest history.

 

PINTEREST IS SOCIAL WITHOUT THE CHATTER

If you’re worried about people talking, start on Pinterest. It’s not a huge drain on resources because it doesn’t require you to monitor and respond to conversations all day. While I would recommend always having a plan in place before starting any social media campaign, I don’t think a detailed response matrix for responding to various situations is necessary like it is on Facebook.


Posting pictures of patient education materials and other images you already have visible to the public in your existing marketing mediums isn’t likely to elicit lots of comments. This means you aren’t likely to deal with complaints, negative reviews, potential adverse event reports, or off-label discussions. People just don’t use Pinterest in that way.

 

PINTEREST IS LESS TIME CONSUMING

It doesn’t require as many resources for content creation. You don’t need to post 3-5 carefully crafted messages a day and then be ready to respond to them. As the Marketing Communications Manager, you don’t have to worry about a flood of content you have to oversee for legal risks. Pinterest doesn’t move as fast as the other social networks. You don’t necessarily have to post every day. The work flow is manageable.

 

YOU ALREADY HAVE PINTEREST CONTENT

You just have to provide your agency with the visual materials you already have and they organize and repurpose the imagery for Pinterest. It’s that easy.

Yes, you, Director of Marketing for a healthcare company. I know you already have Pinterest content, even if you don’t think you do. Chances are, you already have images on your website that can be pinned. I would go as far as to venture that if you really surveyed existing marketing material, you would find a lot of images that can be repurposed for Pinterest. Did you know that you can pin video, too? Pinterest is a great way to get more exposure for your medical marketing videos, which can be a great way to showcase your technology and help customers to understand the benefits of your product in an easy-to-understand format.

 

Still need some Pinspiration? Here’s a list of 40 ideas for Pinterest that can help you get started.

 

YOU CAN DO IT

I know this is a lot to process, but if you think about it, this is an exciting, low-risk way to enter social media. With the help of an agency, all you have to do is provide some of your existing visual material, and they will do the rest. You don’t have to go through pages and pages of written material with the legal team. You just need a willingness to be open-minded about social media. Once you decide your ready, trust your agency as the social media experts and your legal department as the legal experts. If everybody does their job, you’ll be just fine.
