"Using social media is the fastest and least expensive method for us to get feedback." - Pamela Swingley, founder & CEO
Orinda, CA (PRWEB) December 9, 2009
RememberItNow! LLC, today announced the launch of a research project that leverages social media channels to gather feedback on a new patient-centric eHealth service. The online service includes medication reminders, a personal health record, and private care community.
"We built RememberItNow! by continually listening to the needs of patients and caregivers," notes Pamela Swingley, founder of RememberItNow!
"Now that we are closer to launch, insight from a variety of industry professionals is just as critical. As a start-up in a fast-moving industry, leveraging social media channels is simply the fastest and least expensive method for us to get feedback."
After watching an entertaining flash-based overview of the service, viewers are asked for feedback through a short poll. RememberItNow! distributed the survey presentations through several social media channels. The company aims to quickly reach a wide audience of professionals who share honest insights into the value of the eHealth service for their industry.
To clarify the benefits for each market segment, RememberItNow! designed three different presentations and polls for the following audiences:
- Employee benefits: View the presentation: HR/Benefit Professionals: Tell Us What You Think
- Long-term care: View the presentation: Long-term Care Professionals: Tell Us What You Think
- HMOs and medical groups: View the presentation: Health Care Professionals: Tell Us What You Think
Two online free tools were used to create the polls. Prezi, the revolutionary, flash-based presentation system was used to create the dynamic overviews. Prezi presentations can be quickly shared via link, or easily embedded into a blog. Survey data is captured and analyzed by SurveyGizmo, an easy-to-use web-survey tool. "Not only do these tools work really well, they both have free versions," recommends Swingley.
The survey was distributed through social media networks, including LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook and bloggers. "We started building online relationships before we wrote a single line of code," recalls Swingley. These relationships have been key in getting early market feedback, and they became the foundation for our poll distribution.
Swingley reads every single response, and reports that early feedback has been rewarding. "Respondents have been very generous in sharing their professional insights on our concept, what they like and what we need to do better. The polls are still open, so let us know what you think."
