Doctor Referral Institute serves specialty practices in the medical and dental field around the country. They provide ‘face to face’ representation with an experienced team and system to referral sources. This experience gives them a tremendous advantage in developing new referrals and managing your existing ones.
Every Practice markets to some extent, whether they know it or not, and whether they are good at it or not. But FOR the vast majority of specialty practices and hospitals, doctor referral building is the most effective marketing strategy for New Patients.
Some doctors and healthcare executives may hold the term “marketing” in very low esteem, most will recognize the need to grow and protect referrals.
The fact is that referral building is actually #1 of the six key marketing strategies to growing any healthcare organization:
1. Doctor referral building
2. Internal (patient referral) marketing
3. External advertising
4. Public relations (including free press and events)
5. Branding
6. Internet marketing
Having a busy office is good, but an office full of high quality patients is priceless.
Assuring a regular flow of referrals from practices, hospitals and other businesses requires a regular, systematic—even scheduled—amount of time and attention.
