Moving On Up! SMS Now First Patient Contact Method

sms first

We have found that SMS, or text message, has great patient response rates, the best actually. Which is why we have moved it to number one!

Whats does that mean for you?
-Quicker response times from patients
-Higher cognitive recall of a patient experience = higher quality feedback
-Fewer patients bothered by emails found after they have taken the SMS survey

Nearly two-thirds of all Americans own a smartphone of some kind. And, over 2.2 trillion SMS messages are sent by Americans each year. Yet, for the most part, the methods used in the healthcare industry to communicate with patients remain dated and ineffective.

Email Updates

We have reworked our sending protocols to help ensure emails are sent to both patients and your inboxes.

Due to poor email address quality we have made integration of numerous safeguards to ensure email deliverability a priority. Additional checks are now in place to ensure emails are formatted properly, have a validated domain association, and are not being blocked by spam filters. In the coming months be sure to watch your data quality in your portal upload page as these checks are integrated. Rest assured SurveyVitals will do everything possible to ensure bad data is filtered but please keep in mind we can only use the data you are sending us and some will be removed. Additionally, SurveyVitals reserves the right to limit sending of bad data. For those sending emails as a majority you may have noticed a dip in responses, this will be remediated shortly.

Press Release – 1 million anesthesia surveys

1 million anesthesia surveys

SurveyVitals® just reached a huge milestone! An anonymous patient completed the 1 millionth anesthesia patient satisfaction survey yesterday morning (August 18, 2015). SurveyVitals prides itself on providing actionable, accurate data, and the value of our national baseline continues to expand with each new survey that is completed. Benchmark your practice, divisions, and physicians against a national, organization, division, or specialty baseline.

We continue to disrupt the outdated model of expensive paper surveys that garner low response rates and provide delayed feedback. We’re proud to say our solution is used by thousands of providers across 58 specialties, and that by first quarter of 2016 we should have 1.5 million surveys in our anesthesia baseline and another 1 million in our outpatient baseline. Here’s to patient satisfaction, quality, and improvement!
