SIM Partners and ReviewTrackers to Conduct Webinar on How Healthcare Systems Can Fuel Local Marketing With Physician Reviews and Ratings

By Julie Piatek

Healthcare Marketers Will Learn How to Combine Location Data With Contextual Reviews and Ratings to Connect With Patients

CHICAGO (January 26, 2016) — SIM Partners, a leading provider of location marketing technology, and reputation management company ReviewTrackers will hold a webinar on Thursday, Feb. 4, at 2 p.m. CST to discuss how healthcare systems can be more visible, relevant, and engaging through a strong local marketing program that harnesses the power of location data in combination with physician reviews and ratings.

The webinar, “Take Ownership of Customer Reviews and Ratings,” will show healthcare marketers how to transform the patient journey by combining physician reviews and ratings with a comprehensive location data management strategy. Harnessing the power of physician data will make healthcare systems visible in the moments where and when patients are looking for care. Providing contextual content, such as physician reviews and ratings, will make it possible for healthcare marketers to create the “next” moments of conversion along the patient journey, which most often begins with search.

During the webinar, Amanda Bury, SIM Partners’ Managing Director of healthcare, and ReviewTrackers’ Account Manager Emily Carl will provide a two-pronged approach for making physician reviews and ratings more visible and useful in context of a local marketing strategy that is fueled by location data management. The webinar will also discuss how healthcare systems can manage their reputations across individual locations and popular third-party review sites.

“In an era of patient transparency, healthcare systems can be more responsive and build their brands by taking ownership of their location data with a strategy that includes management of physician reviews and ratings,” Bury said. “Publishing helpful reviews is not the answer in and of itself; sharing findable reviews in context of a strong approach to location data is crucial.”

Carl added, “Nearly eight out of 10 consumers now begin their healthcare search online, and 45 percent look at reviews before scheduling an appointment. Harnessing the power of ratings and reviews is no longer an option but a must-do for serious healthcare marketers.”

Webinar attendees will learn practical next steps for managing, collecting and publishing reviews and ratings and approaches for making the information findable by managing location data more effectively.

The hour-long webinar is free to attend and recommended for marketers representing multi-location medical enterprises. Register to attend the webinar — or view the replay — here, or follow along on Twitter using the hashtag #ReviewPower.
