Looking for more engagement with your patients? Try texting them

Pin It Now!
The quest for patient engagement is still one of the areas doctors are working to perfect.  In a recent infographic from Televox, they look at the opportunities that come from innovative, out of the box ways for physicians to communicate with their patients.   Land lines are moving out and issuing in a new era of two way engagement is the SmartPhone which can elevate traditional phone calls to  confirmation tools and Q&A devices.

A few of the stats that stood out to me in this infographic were:
  • 39% of American households surveyed now only use wireless devices.  Home phone numbers may soon become a thing of the past.
  • Wireless device penetration in the United States is 102%
  • 82% of Americans surveyed think that communicating digitally with a doctor would be beneficial
  • Consumers read 98% of text messages
