Five Must-Track Digital Marketing Metrics for Health Systems

There are so many digital marketing metrics to track, it can leave marketers with a serious case of TMI. Having too much data is overwhelming and looking at the wrong data is a waste of time. The key is to find the data that illustrates the new website visitors you’ve acquired, but also shows opportunity for meaningful optimizations. That raises the question: what metrics matter most for your hospital or health system?

The Patient Access Paradox

Why is it that we as patients are told to wait weeks, if not months, to see a physician, when in fact many provider organizations are only operating at 50-60% capacity?

Our nation's healthcare system suffers from a mismatch between patient demand and provider supply, something that we refer to as the "Patient Access Paradox". Almost everyone has had a personal experience with the problem of long appointment wait times, which range between 3 and 30 weeks across the country for both primary and specialist care. Yet at the same time, our hospital clients experience as low as 50-60% physician productivity, struggling to "unlock" the capacity that is buried somewhere in their provider networks.

Transition Management: Where the population health management rubber hits the road

This post was written by George Pace, Kyruus' Director of Client Development

A health system CEO once told me that anyone who tells you she knows what “population health management” means is lying. While I wouldn’t use similarly strong language to make that point, I have had many conversations with health system and health plan leaders about “population health management”, and through those conversations have come to understand that we do not nearly have a uniform definition of what the term even means. The absence of a uniform definition for population health management can be attributed to market variability, i.e. my population is different from yours, and therefore implies a different approach to managing it.

Can’t Get No (Referral) Satisfaction

In the event of a medical illness, we all want to feel that we will get to the “right” doctor – someone expert in diagnosing and treating our specific condition using the best and latest in medical knowledge. Not surprisingly, there is a large and growing body of evidence suggesting that the “right” doctor for a given patient is the one with the appropriate training and clinical experience in that patient’s condition. This is particularly true in specialist care where procedures are more common and conditions more narrowly defined.
