New Orleans, LA (PRWEB) March 13, 2012
Save On Medical, the premiere price-shopping and appointment booking tool for healthcare services, is pleased to announce their contract with DIS (Diagnostic Imaging Services) in New Orleans, Louisiana. DIS has three facilities throughout the city, all of which will be participating in Save On Medical’s program.
As an outpatient diagnostic imaging service provider Diagnostic Imaging Services is dedicated to providing the highest quality of care to a vast patient market, with lower fees than any New Orleans area hospital-owned imaging center. DIS’ dedication to affordable and quality care is why they were attracted to Save On Medical. Scott Turke, Director of Marketing and Communication Relations at DIS, is pleased that consumers will be able to gain access to their facilities through such an invaluable portal, helping them to market directly to the public.
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.
Diagnostic Imaging Services’ 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. Turke commented saying, “The efforts put forth regarding educating physicians and consumers, not only with the website but also in search engine marketing and field work, add to our marketing initiatives in ways that are cost effective and thorough.”
DIS was attracted to Save On Medical due to the application’s flexibility and their ability to have control over the information on their profile, as well as the options to alter prices, should they decide to do so, based on demand and availability. Turke also said, “We also know that the need for patients to have access to affordable healthcare, such as medical imaging, will continue to rise. This type of service is directly in line with our efforts to educate the public to have them better understand that they have a choice and have an opportunity to save big money.”
