Partnership Combines Location Marketing with Transparency to Drive Patient Acquisition at Scale

CHICAGO – April 5, 2016 – Location marketing technology leader SIM Partners (www.simpartners.com) announced today a partnership with patient feedback management provider Binary Fountain® (www.binaryfountain.com), giving healthcare marketers an integrated solution to drive patient acquisition through increased search visibility and greater transparency.

“Now more than ever, consumers expect to find what they want where and when they want it — and that is no different with patients searching for care,” said Jon Schepke, CEO, SIM Partners. “This partnership combines the power of location data with contextual content and reviews to drive visibility, relevance, and engagement at scale for healthcare systems — ultimately increasing patient acquisition.”

SIM Partners’ location-based marketing platform, Velocity, now seamlessly integrates with Binary Fountain’s transparency solution, Binary Star Ratings, to offer a complete, top-tier solution for healthcare marketers. This partnership allows healthcare providers to increase the visibility of physicians and locations across the patient journey by leveraging Velocity’s industry-leading Location Data Management and physician directory solutions, while establishing credibility with potential patients by leveraging Binary Fountain’s proprietary star ratings and reviews.

“Healthcare providers are increasingly recognizing the need to better engage healthcare consumers at a key stage in their patient journey – choosing a physician,” said Ramu Potarazu, president and CEO of Binary Fountain. “Binary Fountain’s and SIM Partners’ hyper-local and transparency solutions are empowering these providers to meet this need with a convenient, integrated solution.”

When customers log into Binary Fountain’s platform they will see Velocity’s Location Data Health reporting. This proprietary scoring algorithm provides marketers insights into the accuracy and health of their listings, so they can proactively manage their physician data to better reach potential patients where and when they are looking for care.

Binary Star Ratings leverages provider patient experience surveys, from Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (CAHPS) and other sources, turning responses into reviews and ratings for publishing onto physician directory pages. The solution helps improve search results on Google and demonstrate provider commitment to transparency by publishing all patient feedback.

SIM Partners’ Velocity platform automates and scales location-based marketing efforts including managing, distributing, and monitoring location and physician data. The platform also creates engaging local experiences through the creation of location and physician pages that engage searchers and move them to convert. SIM Partners’ expertise in location data management, combined with Binary Fountain’s specialty in reviews and ratings, gives customers actionable insights into their local presence and additional assets to better serve and attract patients.
