Meddkit: The Startup Offering Turnkey Digital Patient Engagement for Private Healthcare Practices
While it’s never been a secret that doctors are overworked, the problem is only getting worse. A survey conducted by the Mayo Clinic says that 42 percent of physicians experience symptoms of burnout, with 60 percent citing “too many bureaucratic tasks” as the cause of their stress.
Bureaucratic tasks often include administrative work, including charting and paperwork. Approximately 50 percent of physicians work at least 60 hours a week, with a good chunk of the time allotted to paperwork. This bottleneck requires a huge amount of time for physicians and prevents them from seeing more patients as a result.
One easy solution to this problem is utilizing IT support services like Meddkit, where they take the burden off of the physician, allowing them to focus on patient care instead of getting bogged down by appointments and technology issues.
Meddkit knows how challenging it is for private healthcare providers to find time for their patients while dealing with the heavy administrative burdens, regulatory compliance, continuing medical education, as well as routine billing and reimbursement headaches. Adding social media and medical web apps to the mix is like adding one pressure too many to an already overburdened physician.
New Solutions for a New Era of Technology
In this new era of healthcare, where patients are searching online for their medical needs, medical practices must find ways to stand out online. Digital engagement, proper utilization of social media, and building a positive online presence are more important than ever. The practices and medical doctors that don’t stand out online will find themselves losing patients.
“I have enjoyed working with Meddkit and love the personal attention and care,” says Dr. James Greenfield, president of CCRHC. “They have helped grow our practice, digitally marketing us, redesigning, and maintaining our website, supporting our IT needs, and training our staff. We grew from 42 page views in September to 524 page views in March, resulting in over 40 patient appointment requests online and many more over the phone. We will be opening a second location within a year.”
Social media is just one of the services that Meddkit provides. By rebuilding and maintaining a patient-focused website, providing robust analytics, patient texting, messaging, and self-scheduling, Meddkit is there to modernize the healthcare practice. For medical professionals, the result is less technology stress, more consistent appointments, and improved online ratings. Meddkit empowers physicians, counselors, massage therapists, dentists, and their staff by automating practice growth and eliminating IT administration.
Real Humans, Real Solutions in an IT Age
Meddkit doesn’t solve technology problems with faceless, impersonal technology. Rather, they are committed to offering personalized care with a human touch. As their website states, “We are your partners and here for you when you need us.”
“Meddkit is amazing, and their team is fantastic,” says business owner and virtual health coach Amy Harrington, RN. “They are reliable and trustworthy. I wish I had found them years ago. They own a space for healthcare professionals that allows us to focus on patient care instead of the painful things of business ownership. Every month they catch up with me in a meeting and brainstorming session, which allows me to continue moving forward. As my business grows, the more help I need in that arena. It used to bog me down, but I know I can put those issues in their hands.”
Meddkit offers a low-cost, automatic, and adaptive way to appeal to this new patient-consumer so the doctor can focus on what they do best — patient care. Best of all, they guarantee their services. “We do not believe in hoping you get your money’s worth,” Meddkit says on their website. “We guarantee a return on your investment for our partners who follow our mutually agreed upon plan.”
Gone are the days when a physician simply hung out their shingle, placed an advertisement in the Yellow Pages, and went to work seeing patients. In this complicated age where healthcare professionals are expected to not only treat patients, but navigate the changing landscape of their profession and offer savvy IT services, Meddkit is focused on helping private healthcare and wellness providers thrive in the digital age. Meddkit loves spending time in front of their devices so that you don’t have to.
