Staying connected with patients is challenging yet more important than ever before. There are several tools available to help you to strengthen the relationship between your treatment program and your patients, but which one is right for you? As you evaluate options, here are some questions to think through:
Who do you want to engage?
Is the platform meant for just patients or would it also be valuable to have ways to engage families and alumni?
How long do you want to engage with patients?
Are you looking to stay engaged for a few weeks or over several months or longer?
Should the platform support the entire program?
Is building brand awareness and increasing referrals important to your program?
How much time is required of your staff to be successful?
Do you have significant internal resources that can be dedicated to this initiative or do you need something that can run with little staff effort?
What does success look like?
Do you have the best practices and strategies to make the app successful or do you want guidance from an experienced team?
