Healthcare Solution Combines Location Data Management with Contextual Content to Drive Patient Acquisition at Scale

 CHICAGO – May 10, 2015 – To support continued demand for location and physician data management solutions in the healthcare industry, location marketing technology leader SIM Partners (www.simpartners.com) announced today the launch of Velocity Health.

Velocity Health is a comprehensive local and location marketing solution for healthcare marketers to attract and manage patient relationships in the age of the mobile consumer. Through SIM Partners’ leading location and physician data management platform, Velocity Health, healthcare systems harness the power of their location and physician data to connect patients with physicians in the moments that matter: where and when they need care.

“Healthcare data is complex, with so many interconnected layers between healthcare systems, hospitals, service lines, practice locations and physicians,” said Jon Schepke, CEO, SIM Partners. “Our experience working with healthcare clients has driven insights to fuel our roadmap, and ultimately, the creation of Velocity Health, the most comprehensive location data management solution for healthcare systems on the market today.”

Many large-scale healthcare organizations such as Advocate Health Care, Bellin Health, Cottage Health, and more rely on Velocity Health as the single source of truth for their physician location data today. SIM Partners’ healthcare team is led by Amanda Bury, managing director. Bury has more than a decade of digital healthcare experience and has led client growth strategies and product developments to transform the patient journey, while increasing patient acquisition for healthcare systems across multiple locations and physician networks.  

Velocity Health provides healthcare marketers a comprehensive solution to location and physician data management as well as publishing across large-scale systems. Velocity Health’s open architecture allows for marketers to leverage their investments through integrations with scheduling systems such as CRM tools, review management platforms and more. Key functionality includes:

  • Location and Physician Data Management – provides ongoing management, distribution, and monitoring of physician and hospital data to increase visibility and information accuracy.
  • Physician Directory Solution – a mobile responsive search tool that connects patients to doctors.
  • Physician Profile Pages – mobile responsive pages built with SEO best practices for physicians that contain engaging and localized content that drive conversions such as education, insurance information, and National Provider Identifier (NPI) credentials.
  • Insights & Reporting –  provides a health score that quantifies how visible physician profile pages and practice locations are to searchers and how accurate that information is. The suite also offers demographic, website metrics and keyword ranking insights. Velocity’s performance dashboards and customized offline reporting allow healthcare systems to easily analyze their data.

This news comes on the heels of SIM Partners recent partnership announcement with Binary Fountain. Velocity Health seamlessly integrates with Binary Fountain’s transparency solution, Binary Star Ratings, to offer a complete, top-tier solution for healthcare marketers.
