Patient engagement is essential for achieving a sustainable and effective practice while providing patients with the knowledge to make informed decisions. This holiday season, engage your patients in the process. By doing so, you can achieve healthy outcomes, provide better care, reduce stress and the financial burden of health care expenses. Patients who are engaged tend to deliver better results and are more likely to be healthier.
Engagement inspires your patients to learn more about their health care procedures and make the best decisions for their particular situation. As your staff monitors the patient’s health over time, patients will be aware of the process and will cooperate for their health. This holiday season, encourage engagement with your patients. Here are a few creative ways to engage.
How to Help Your Team Engage With Patients This Holiday Season
Keep Patients Informed
When it comes to patient engagement, simply staying in touch during the holidays is effective. Share updates with your patients regarding holiday hours and closures to make fitting appointments onto their schedules easy. Updates also serve as a reminder for a patient to make an appointment.
Are you offering holiday promotions? If so, remember that reaching out to patients to let them know about it is prudent. A great place to start is advertising on your website. However, eventually, you will want to spread the word by posting on social media and sending an email blast.
Strong Social Media Presence
Social media is all about connecting. Use social media to your advantage with patient engagement strategies. The possibilities are endless and limited only by your creativity. Consider making YouTube holiday videos of your staff or posting photos for fun contests.
Another fantastic way to highlight your expertise is by hosting a holiday-themed Twitter chat. With a discussion, you can address common seasonal issues related to your field or topics that are currently popular with patients.
A Holiday Giving Campaign
This holiday season, handing back to those in need is an excellent way to get your patients in the holiday spirit. So, choose a local charity and sponsor a giving campaign. Promote your cause on your company website, blog, social media accounts and your office. You can honor those who donate by publicly displaying their names on a donor list with their permission. A giving campaign is an excellent way to connect with your patients to give back to the community.
Share Holiday Greetings
When you send holiday cards this season, do not forget your patients! You can save a tidy sum by sending digital cards. Digital cards present an excellent opportunity to thank patients and send them good wishes this time of the year.
