Startaloo Launches A Pending Patient Follow Up Service To Maximize Starts.

Startaloo helps orthodontists create flexible treatment presentations so they can start more patients, maximize profits, and make data-driven decisions with ease.

Wappingers Falls, United States - January 21, 2020 /PressCable/ —

In an ideal world, patients will start the same day they are presented treatment. But the reality is that most patients need some time to consider their options. According data collected by Startaloo, approximately 29% of patients across all practices will have a same-day-start. But what about the remaining 70% of patients? Investing in orthodontic treatment is not like shopping for a candy bar. It’s a considerable investment, so many patients need time to weigh their options. There are three important phases of the patient’s journey that all orthodontists should be aware of:

Phase 1: Discovery- This is when a patient discovers a local orthodontist and wants to learn more about their practice

Phase 2: Consideration – During this phase, a patient attends a consultation and is considering treatment

Phase 3: Decision- This typically takes place after they leave the consultation room, and it’s the phase when patients decide whether or not to start treatment

Throughout the patient’s journey, the third phase is the most important, and successful orthodontists who have a solid follow-up process are the ones most likely to get the patient to say, “yes”. By not having consistent and timely follow-up protocols, practices see patients drop-off during this critical phase, costing them thousands of dollars a year.

The challenge for many practices is dedicating the time and the resources to follow-up. For a treatment coordinator, this requires finding time to make phone calls or send follow-up emails, all while attending new patients. TCs are busy, so it’s easy to forget, or put new patient follow-up on the back burner.

Luckily, Startaloo, an orthodontist presentation system aimed at turning consults to contracts, makes the follow-up process easy and requires minimal effort at the practice level. We recently assisted a practice by updating and completing follow-up auto-tasks. The result? We added over $100k to the practice’s production calendar!

Check out these tips aimed at improving follow-up and increasing patient starts:

1. Create a standardized system that maps out follow-up touchpoints and implement this system across all pending patients. This system is essentially a schedule on when to follow-up. For example: Day 1 after initial consultation: Make a follow-up call; Day 3 after initial consultation: Send follow-up email.

2. Vary patient follow-up across different platforms. Follow-up by email, phone, and text messages. This maximizes exposure and ensures messages stay on the patient’s radar.

3. Don’t give up. Most practices make the mistake of stopping their follow-up a couple of weeks after the initial consultation. Startaloo has found that successful follow-up protocols should run the span of approximately seven touch points spread out over the span of two months.

Making patient follow-up more efficient isn’t easy. Let Startaloo do the work. Schedule A Demo Today.

Soleimani, a general who became Iran icon by targeting US

Feb 26, 2020

TEHRAN, Iran — For Iranians whose icons since the Islamic Revolution have been stern-faced clergy, Maj. Gen. Qassem Soleimani widely represented a figure of national resilience in the face of four decades of U.S. pressure. For the U.S. and Israel, he was a shadowy figure in command of Iran's proxy forces, responsible for fighters in Syria backing President Bashar Assad and for the deaths of American troops in Iraq. Solemani survived the horror of Iran’s long war in the 1980s with Iraq to take control of the Revolutionary Guard’s elite Quds Force, responsible for the Islamic Republic’s foreign campaigns.

Muslim hajj pilgrims ascend Mount Arafat for day of worship

Feb 26, 2020

MOUNT ARAFAT, Saudi Arabia — More than 2 million Muslims are gathered at the sacred hill of Mount Arafat in Saudi Arabia for an intense day of worship and reflection on what's considered the climax of the Islamic hajj pilgrimage. Some had tears streaming down their faces as the men, wearing simple white garments, and women raised their hands in worship on the slopes of the rocky hill. Many walked through the pre-dawn darkness early Saturday to the hill where the Prophet Muhammad delivered his final sermon some 1,400 years ago, calling for equality and unity among Muslims. One of...

Saudi changes allow women to travel without male consent

Feb 26, 2020

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — Saudi Arabia published new laws early Friday that loosen restrictions on women by allowing any citizen to apply for a passport and travel freely, ending a long-standing guardianship policy that gave men control over women. The changes are a potential game-changer for Saudi women's rights in the kingdom. The legal system has long been criticized because it treated women as minors throughout their adult lives, requiring they have a man's consent to obtain a passport or travel abroad. Often a woman's male guardian is her father or husband, and in some cases a woman's own...

Egypt demands Christie's halt auction of King Tut statue

Feb 26, 2020

CAIRO — Egypt has tried to halt the auction of a 3,000-year-old stone sculpture of the famed boy pharaoh Tutankhamun at Christie's in London, while the auction house said its sale was legal. The statue — a brown quartzite head depicting King Tut — is scheduled to be auctioned off in July, and could generate more than $5 million, according to Christie's. The artifact features King Tut's full mouth with slightly drooping lower lips and almond-shaped eyes. For many, King Tut is the ultimate symbol of ancient Egypt's glory. Howard Carter discovered the pharaoh's nearly intact tomb in 1922 in...
