Beryl Introduces Mobile Physician Find
BEDFORD, Texas, Nov. 2, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Beryl, a patient experience services company dedicated to connecting healthcare providers to consumers, is committed to delivering a seamless, compassionate interaction between patients and your hospital by leveraging the latest technologies. In many instances, the patient experience begins outside of your hospital when the consumer begins looking for care. To assist with making this patient experience easier and more accessible, Beryl introduces its newest tool, Mobile Physician Find, to support individual hospitals or hospital systems.
Mobile Physician Find provides flexibility and convenience to consumers who are looking for a physician or other information about your hospital via a mobile device. Best of all, Mobile Physician Find offers you the opportunity to support your brand more effectively through the web. This tool can connect the consumer to additional information on hospital locations, centers of excellence, and other brand supported content. Consumers can search for a physician by name, specialty, or keyword and request for a callback.
According to Nielsen Mobile which tracks wireless trends, the number of smartphone subscribers was 15 million in 2008. This number almost doubled in 2009 and is expected to grow to 142 million in 2011. "The number of patients accessing health information online and on mobile devices is growing rapidly," said Steve Whitehurst, Chief Customer Officer. "Hospitals should take every advantage to engage consumers early in the process." At the end of the day, it is all about what kind of experience patients have with your hospital and how accessible your physicians are to patients when they need one. With Mobile Physician Find, Beryl offers another way to make that connection easier for consumers on the go.
