As part of your EHR implementation, it is crucial to create a systematic approach for tracking the ways in which patients begin their journey with your practice. This includes capturing information on referrals, advertising efforts, social media, and other marketing channels that led them to book an appointment. By implementing a comprehensive lead source tracking system, you gain valuable insights into the effectiveness of your marketing efforts and the patient acquisition process.
To achieve this, it is important to create both primary and subcategories of lead sources that are directly connected to the patient’s sales data. For example, a patient may have come from social media as a primary source, and more specifically, from an Instagram post as a subcategory. This detailed categorization allows your EHR system to capture this data and generate insightful reports that provide marketing intelligence on what is working and what is not, all categorized by the source of origin.
By reviewing and comparing revenue connected to patient referrals versus revenue generated from Instagram, you can measure the success and impact of different lead sources. This analysis enables you to allocate resources effectively, invest in strategies that yield the highest returns, and optimize your marketing efforts to attract and retain more patients.
During the EHR implementation process, Symplast empowers you to configure and track these lead sources and subcategories seamlessly. By integrating this data into your reports, you gain a comprehensive understanding of the effectiveness of each marketing channel and can make data-driven decisions to maximize your practice’s performance.
