It's Easier Than You May Think!
Patient outreach. Recare. Recall. Regardless of what you call it, the definition is the same: reactivating patients you’ve previously seen that are due, slightly overdue, or grossly past due for their next appointment.
They DO need you. They might even know that they need you, they just…forget, or put it off until they really do forget. It’s a struggle that practices are faced with every day. Patients are so busy - doing anything from working late to scrolling through their Facebook feed - that they simply don’t think about calling to make another appointment with your office.
Despite how hard it seems that patient reactivation can be, you must persist with your efforts to bring patients back into the office!
Why? Well, other than caring about their health, there is the simple fact that reactivating patients you’ve already seen is significantly cheaper - 7x to be specific - than acquiring new ones. It’s the most effective and efficient way to keep your schedule full, and your bottom line growing.
So…how do you combat the difficulty of reaching patients in order to tap into this elusive increased revenue and booked schedule?
