As healthcare technology continues to advance, it is constantly revolutionizing the way that healthcare professionals are treating and communicating with their patients. The advent of the internet, cell phones, and certain smart phone apps has created room for new avenues of doctor-patient communication. Now more than ever before, doctors can be in contact with their patients at virtually any time.
If you are a healthcare provider, this should signal to you that communication with your patients is becoming all the more important. Many patients will want the opportunity to contact you at anytime with health concerns, and their loyalty to you as a healthcare professional may depend on it.
New technology can be utilized for this purpose. Making yourself reachable through phone or email will reassure patients that you are always available, and suggesting that patients use smart phone health alert apps can also be helpful. In the end, patients are hoping for a personal connection to their doctor. Successfully meeting this demand can mean retaining more patients.
