I’ll let you in on a little secret: digital ads shouldn’t be the end all, be all of marketing your outpatient practice. Don’t get me wrong—digital ads are important. But when it comes to driving new patients through your front door, online reviews are your best friend. That’s because online reviews are essentially the modern equivalent to word-of-mouth, which many would argue is the most effective type of marketing. And as we mention in this post on …

It’s no surprise that patients turn to the Web for health information . (Dr. Google, anyone?) And when folks hit up the Internet for solutions to what ails them, you want them to know rehab therapy is the ideal option. (After all, as we mention here , only about 10% of patients who could benefit from seeing a PT actually end up doing so.) That’s where tools like Google Ads come into play (e.g., targeting advertisements to …

Strive Labs co-founders Ryan Klepps and Scott Hebert recently joined WebPT president Heidi Jannenga for an insightful webinar about improving patient retention and reducing early patient drop-out. We know this is a super-relevant topic, especially because the cost of diminishing patient visits represents a $6 billion problem that not many people in the industry are talking about—at least not yet. As a result, we received a slew of great questions that we couldn’t get to live on …

Patient health is the top priority for most rehab therapists—specifically, getting patients back to a level of health that allows them to do what they love. But, when patients say “sayonara” before they reach their therapy goals, they lose the opportunity to live their fullest lives. To make matters worse, the average rehab therapy practice will lose $150,000 annually due to patient dropout alone. Talk about a one-two punch to the gut. Here at WebPT, we believe …

Attracting patients can be a big struggle—one that, especially in smaller clinics, often leaves therapists and practice owners wondering exactly how to get more business. And although we’ve talked a lot about some common strategies you can use to lure in new patients (and retain old ones ), there are some less-visible forces that could be pulling in a small portion of your patient pool. So today, we’re going to step away from more conventional digital marketing …

Many practices are experiencing higher levels of bad debt than they have in the past—partially due to the proliferation of high-deductible health plans that place greater financial responsibility on patients. And when patients don't pay the full amount they are responsible for—and practices fail to collect past-due amounts—the go-to solution often is writing off those totals as bad debt. But financially, that is not an ideal course of action. So, let's talk about how to optimize your …
