First, SocialClimb integrated an automated feedback program with OrthoCarolina’s EHR system. The program prompts individual patients for feedback at the correct point in the care cycle with no effort from OrthoCarolina’s staff.
Second, SocialClimb enabled automatic monitoring and notification for good and poor reviews. This was accomplished via SocialClimb’s real-time integration through the review platform’s APIs. Notifications are sent to the correct location management team members via email and text. These reporting tools deliver instant notifications, daily and weekly digests, and monthly location and provider report cards that make patient feedback accessible to the entire OC team. With hundreds of reviews coming in every day, automated distribution of this data was key.
Finally, SocialClimb enabled OC with tools that manage and enable patient communication for service recovery and responses. Learning of and responding to patient-reported issues became automated and simple.
Within just a few months, OrthoCarolina started seeing dramatic results. As the reviews started pouring in, they were thrilled to see the average star rating improve, receive valuable and actionable patient feedback, and gain control of their practice reputation.
In addition to the increase in quantity and quality of reviews, OrthoCarolina is benefiting from significant improvements in their search rankings with Google at each of their locations. Rankings and search results have also improved on Facebook and Healthgrades.
“SocialClimb’s ability to solve these social review challenges for a practice as large and complex as OrthoCarolina has been refreshing,” said Blair Primus, CMO at OrthoCarolina. “As a marketer, you rarely find vendors or solutions that really deliver more than what they promise, but SocialClimb has done just that. At a reasonable price point, and with very little effort from our staff, they have truly helped us transform our social media reputation."
