The Basics of a New Patient Welcome Process [Ep. #111]
In this episode of the Profitable Practice Podcast, I discuss the elements of a basic onboarding process for your new patients. Having a clear, well thought out process for welcoming new patients to your practice is KEY to making a good first impression and building trust with your new patient. 🙂
How you welcome new patients into your practice can make it easy for him/her to become a life-long patient or break your relationship and send them looking for someone else.
There are 4 parts to the process of welcoming a new patient into your practice:
- The Pre-visit Experience
- The Reception Experience
- The Visit Experience
- The Post-visit Experience
Each part has it’s own challenges and in this episode I share the best business savvy practices I’ve come across that leave patients, staff, and YOU feeling happy and positive about your new therapeutic relationship.
In this episode:
- [0:00] Successful onboarding and the importance of setting a good first impression.
- [4:02] The Pre-visit Experience – everything that happens before they show up in your office.
- [10:15] The Reception Experience – this is where your first impression really takes root – get it right and get a patient for life!
- [12:55] The First Visit Experience – yes, there is a way to run this that allows you to build your business smoothly
- [17:28] The Post-visit Experience – learning to follow up will make all the difference with patient retention.
After you’ve listened to the episode, I’d love to hear what you do!
Do you use any of these strategies on your new patient welcome process? Which new one will you implement? Do you have another good idea to share? I’d love to read your thoughts here.
The best part of this podcasting thing is getting to discuss the topic with YOU after the show. One thing I love about the interwebs is scrolling and reading all the ideas and questions people share.
