2015 the year of customer experience

February 1st, 2015 Posted by Blog/ News 0 thoughts on “2015 the year of customer experience”

A global survey report published this January highlighting key digital trends, challenges and opportunities suggests customer experience is the key opportunity for business in 2015.  This presents a real opportunity for dental practices to drive a customer friendly culture and turn customer experience into a competitive advantage.

The introduction of the Friends and Family Test (FFT) for practices with NHS provision from April this year demonstrates the power of customer experience to maintain a competitive experience. It’s not always easy to get the entire team to realign their thinking, but it’s essential if the shift to the customer is genuine. Digital marketing plays a key role in not only supporting the customer experience, it also improves internal communication promoting goal alignment across the entire team.

VSM Healthcare can help maximise your digital marketing opportunities to keep you ahead of the curve in 2015 and beyond.

Your dental patients are ready, are you?

This month we attended a health technology and telehealth event hosted by the welsh government. This network discusses new technology and telehealth as tools to improve patient care. Mark Drakeford AM, Minister for Health and Social Services delivered a key note ministerial address and it made a lot of sense.  He said “Technology continues to play a key role in achieving the best outcomes for patients.” He also commented that “patients are often ahead of the curve in terms of technology over the health care providers.”

This often rings true with dental patients who routinely access information digitally, across multiple devices, on a daily basis. Is your practice maximising this potential with your existing patients and new prospective patients? If not, it’s a missed opportunity for your practice as many people looking for information or specific service offerings are only accessing information available on line or via social media.

VSM healthcare can deliver a complete practice marketing solution so your practice doesn’t miss out.

Operation Smile provides free surgeries to correct facial deformities for thousand or children around the world every year. A new partnership with Microsoft 365 has supported growth by removing technological barriers and streaming collaborations across the world. This has allowed them to expand the reach and impact of Operation Smile, to care for even more children.

As a developed country we take for granted healthcare services on our door step to treat children born with cleft palates and facial deformities. Use of technology to communicate is also 2nd nature to us. It’s humbling to imagine the impact such simple technology tools can make to ease the burden in planning surgical missions, and the dramatic difference they can make to the lives of so many children.

It’s a time of year when we often thinking about planning for the next. Have you considered embracing technology tools to develop your practice? If so, VSM Healthcare offer a complete practice marketing solution to bring a dramatic step change in your patient engagement.
