Save On Medical enables us to broaden our reach to a wider variety of self-pay patients who are price-shopping before procedures.
Gulfport, Mississippi (PRWEB) February 01, 2012
Save On Medical, the newly launched price-shopping and appointment booking tool for healthcare services, is pleased to announce their contract with Compass Imaging in Southern Mississippi. Compass Imaging has two facilities, the first located in Gulfport and a brand new location in D’Iberville.
Compass Imaging’s decision to join the Save On Medical Community was an easy one. With a surplus of recent calls inquiring about self-pay and cash-pay prices at their facilities, they saw a need for a seamless way to cater to that price-sensitive patient population. As an independently owned outpatient diagnostic imaging facility, Compass Imaging is dedicated to providing the highest quality of care to a vast patient market, which is why they were attracted to the way Save On Medical’s systematic, yet personalized, approach.
Operations Manager at Compass Imaging, Leslie Vaughn stated, “Save On Medical enables us to broaden our reach to a wider variety of self-pay patients who are price-shopping before procedures. Thanks to SOM’s previously agreed upon rates and scheduling help, we can care for our patients without all the hassle, focusing only on service and care.” This concept of a preserved culture of care had a lot to do with their decision to partner with Save On, however they were also intrigued by the ability to capitalize on patient visibility in a way they never had before. “With the opening of our additional location, we were in need of a way to drive new patients and procedures to the facility. Save On will be instrumental to this process.”
The capabilities of Save On Medical also play a large role in the physician outreach process for facilities looking to increase referrals from other physicians in their community or network. Rather than going through the challenges of the referral process, a physician can simply recommend the patient goes to saveonmedical.com with their script in hand, to make an educated decision on their own based on aspects of quality, convenience and pricing.
Compass Imaging’s subscription to Save On Medical includes more than just a listing and scheduling capabilities. With the ability to manage their own Patient Process in the Care Manager, Compass Imaging has the ability to pay the same level of attention to their virtual patients as they would if the patient was in their office. Search Engine Optimized profile pages lead to higher website rankings for the facility, along with a tailored keyword strategy which aids in Google Scores.
