The 2018 Orthopedics Service Line Outlook, from Advisory Board, confirms that more than 20% of new patients for orthopedic practices are “Self-referrals”. Self-referral are patients who choose their orthopedic provider primarily based on reputation and reviews left by previous patients.
The self-referrals percentage is expected to continue to increase in the coming years. As the number of patients making care decisions based on provider and practice reputations increases, it becomes ever more important for physicians and practice executives to monitor and build their reputation correctly and consistently.
