Started registering patients in August 2002 with 3 practices Began Rollout to all UHSH and UMA practices in June, 2003 Now fully implemented at 59 practices and hospital departments 2315 patients currently enrolled 1,700 using Health Manager Tool
Early Marketing Efforts Began with Posters, Brochures, Postcards mailed to patients. Some stars at practices, but not the numbers we wanted Big surge as they came up on Patient Link and/or the contest…then they would “forget” to mention.
E-Marketing and the Empowered Consumer We wanted to blend the PatientLink experience with the Health Manager “shared data” tool But we were stumped on the registration process going thru the practices
11 We wanted to message demographically, but just weren’t getting the numbers signing up and clicking to register on Health Manager So…..
12 Nurse Direct/Stay Healthy Physician referral service Outreach to community –BC Walks –Obesity & Smoking cessation –Disease Screenings Regional referral source
We Took Over! Set up at StayHealthy at the Mall Trained the Nurses there Got lots of ideas on how to incorporate into their disease mgt programs First Step…Fax your registrations to us!
14 Stay Healthy Window Banners
15 Practice Fax Form
Still not enough! So we went with what we know OnLine Registrations Firmed up the procedure and process Add a button in the physician directory…4 th most visited part of uhs.net

31 Using E-Marketing Tool Ability to demographically target specific members based on stated interests as well as usage patterns Created an IBS Class, based on registration trends and sold out the class. Added so many new registrants to a new spinal surgery procedure seminar, they had to add two new sessions.
