Two Campaigns That Take Your Optometry Clinic To The Next Level

The world of optometry has drastically changed over the last several years. The times when patients came in for an eye exam and purchased new eye wear on the spot is gone (…or going quickly). Consumers now come in for checkups but leave to purchase their contacts or eye wear online.

How are you going to keep your patients engaged and buying directly from you? Here are a couple campaigns that help patients of all ages stay connected to their optometrist:

1) Rewards For Good Nutrition

We all know good nutrition is good for your eyes. Encouraging patients to eat healthy everyday and rewarding them with points and rewards for good behavior is a great way to offer discounts when buying products from you, and keep them proactive about their eye health.

2) Rewards For Low Screen Time

We all face the challenge of excessive screen time. What better way than to reward patients with points and rewards for not using their digital devices excessively. And if some families are using this platform to help keep everyone in the family in check, imagine the referrals you can get for everyone who needs tips and tricks to do the same in their household.

eTrove is a platform that helps you engage with patients all year round. With a practice branded mobile app, patients can be rewarded for good behavior in the comfort of their own home. To learn more, connect with us at info@etrove.ca.

Three Campaigns Your Physio Practice Must Try

Whether it is soccer and football or cycling and fitness shows, staying active is definitely key for a happy, balanced life. And though people do get older (yes, it happens!), they often push harder, resulting in more aches, pains and injuries.

Over the last several years, we have seen a huge increase in the importance of physiotherapy for people from all walks of life. This approach to managing your aches and pains is effective and has lasting results. This has also resulted in more competition for the industry. Your practice needs to be modern, engaging and a step ahead of the rest.

Over the last two years, eTrove has been offering practice branded apps to physiotherapy practices in North America. What we have also seen is an evolution of fun campaigns that separate these practices from the rest. Here are three must have campaigns for your patients:

1) Home Exercise Campaign

It’s simple. We all know patients need to do their exercises at the practice AND at home. What better way than reminding patients to do their home exercise and rewarding points on a daily basis when they get them done. Hard work = proven results.

2) Complete Treatment Campaign

How many patients need at least a 10 visit treatment plan but only come for 4 visits? Many! As the expert, it is important to find innovative ways to encourage your patients to take care of their health. Rewarding them for completing all 10 visits in exchange for a reward (full body massage or other inhouse gift) is a very effective way to do this.

3) Refer a Friend Campaign

Your patients play on teams and have friends or family that need a great physiotherapist. Getting your happy clients to be your biggest fans on and off the field is a great way to keep them engaged and build your practice. Do you have a referral program? Maybe it’s time to give one a try.

eTrove is a dynamic platform. Engage and reward your patients like never before. Our team helps you the entire way!

Three Awesome Campaigns for Dental Practices

Over the last few years, technology has started to impact dental practices around the world. From new cleaning tools to cloud based practice management software, it is safe to say that the industry is evolving.

However, in addition to these great operational improvements, the opportunity to engage patients and grow practices is also improving. With the right technologies, practices can have more impact on a patients health than ever before.

Over the last two years, eTrove has been offering practice branded apps to practices around North America. What we have also seen is an evolution of fun, engaging campaigns that separate our dental practices from the rest. Here are three awesome campaigns we promote through the eTrove mobile app:

1) Good Brusher Campaign

Simply reward patients for brushing their teeth properly EVERY DAY. Each time they scan the QR code, they earn points. At the next visit, compare their number of brushes to their teeth health. It’s all about Preventive Health for your mouth.

2) Sugarfree Campaign

Building on the good brusher campaign, this fun campaign gives parents an edge to encourage their kids to eat healthy snacks. Challenge getting your kids and clients to eat health, reward them to.

3) Crazy Shirt Day

Everybody loves a great excuse to wear a crazy shirt. You pick the color, you pick the theme. Spread the word through emails and push notifications. Whoever shows up wearing a CRAZY shirt gets points… and maybe a cool prize.

eTrove is a dynamic platform for all health practices. Engage and reward your patients like never before. Create campaigns that suite your practice. Our team helps you the entire way!

eTrove Announces New Strategic Partnership in Canada

Vancouver, BC, November 21, 2016 – Clinicmaster is a complete system for the administration of patient wellness clinics, managing scheduling, documents, analytics, financials, and patient management.

“Clinicmaster is a multi-faceted hybrid solution (desktop + cloud) for practices, but we wanted to extend our outreach to patients where they already are – their smartphones,” says Max Di Paola, president. “eTrove is a great way to keep in touch through a mobile device, and patients love earning points and rewards – especially since they can do that just by participating in their own care and treatment. I am excited to offer our clients a means to engage with patients, offer loyalty bonuses and best for all it does not conflict with any regulatory guideline. This is a true win-win for our clients and their patients.”

“We’re excited to be introduced to the hundreds of clinics already happily using Clinicmaster,” agrees eTrove CEO, Jeanette Jackson. “It’s a huge bonus to the experience they’re already enjoying. Patients love to earn points for everything from checking in on time, to following through on treatment plans, to engaging with social media – and the payoff for practices is huge.” ROI for one Physio and Chiropractic practice using eTrove was close to 1000%, in referrals, retention, and increased recalls.

Current Clinicmaster clients seeking to integrate with eTrove can attend upcoming Webinars to be hosted on Tuesday, December 6 in English, and Tuesday, December 13, in French. Registration details will be shared via client e-Blast. The Webinars will be recorded, but interested clients are also invited to reach out to their Client Care specialist for further details on pricing and rollout schedules. “We’re committed to making the eTrove add-on seamless and simple for participating clinics,” Di Paola explained.

eTrove annonce un nouveau partenariat stratégique au Canada

eTrove et Clinicmaster s’unisse afin d’offrir une solution complète de gestion de pratiques

Vancouver, BC, 21 novembre, 2016

Clinicmaster est un système complet pour gérer une clinique santé et bien- être :  gestion d’horaires, documentation, analyses, finances, et gestion de patients. Ce partenariat avec eTrove favorise des outils de fidélisation ainsi que de commercialisation, qui constituent ensemble une plateforme de gestion de pratique et de rétention de clientèle complète qui captive la clientèle, allège le fardeau de travail à l’accueil et offre un large éventail de modules et fonctionnalités qui enrichiront la relation pratique-clientèle.

« Clinicmaster est une solution multi-facette pour pratiques médicales (sur poste de travail et nuage), et notre but est de connecter avec les patients là où ils sont : le téléphone intelligent, » de dire monsieur Max Di Paola, président. « eTrove est une excellente façon de garder contact via un appareil mobile. De plus les patients adorent récolter des points et des récompenses, tout simplement, en participant à leurs propres traitements. Je suis ravi d’offrir à nos clients un moyen de s’engager avec leurs patients, de leur offrir des primes de fidélité et tout ça sans entrer en conflit avec d’autres directives réglementaires. C’est un concept gagnant-gagnant pour nos clients et leurs patients. »

« Nous sommes ravis d’être présentés aux centaines de cliniques qui sont déjà heureux d’utiliser Clinicmaster » acquiesce madame Jeanette Jackson, PDG chez eTrove. « C’est une énorme bonification au-delà de l’expérience et satisfaction dont elles profitent déjà.  Les patients adorent se mériter des points, toutes les raisons sont bonnes : être à l’heure aux rendez-vous, respecter les plans de traitements, s’engager sur les médias sociaux. Le gain pour les cliniques est énorme ».  Nous avons observé le ROI d’une clinique de physiothérapie et chiropratique atteindre une augmentation de l’ordre de 1000% en références, rétention, et rappel pour consultation.

La clientèle Clinicmaster voulant se prévaloir de eTrove pourra assister à un séminaire en ligne qui se tiendra le 13 décembre 2016 en français et le 6 décembre en anglais. Les détails seront communiqués au moyen d’un « e- Blast. » Le séminaire en ligne sera enregistré, mais la clientèle intéressée est invitée à contacter un spécialiste « client care » chez Clinicmaster afin d’obtenir plus d’information sur la tarification et le déroulement de l’implémentation. Monsieur Di Paola nous explique être déterminé à déployer l’intégration du module eTrove de façon simple et transparente pour les cliniques participantes.

eTrove in The News

Another great article written by Jason Jones was published by Orthotown, an industry resource for orthodontic practice management. Here is an excerpt from the article, ‘10 Best Practices for Patient Referral and Retention Programs,‘ in which Jason offers some ideas for integrating rewards programs:

Many “loyalty” solutions are available, so you want to ensure that the one you choose can be tailored to the needs and interests of your patients. If you have a young patient base, you will want a flexible program that has incentives, prizes and activities that will appeal to children, teens and their parents (like Lego mini-figures or Starbucks cards). One-size-fits-all loyalty programs are not going to provide the same experience for all your patients.

The article was also published in the July/August 2015 print version of the magazine. You can find it on page 48-49.

Thank you, Orthotown, for including Jason!
