Thanks for taking the time to read this edition of the Practice Support Newsletter! This month, we’ll share tips to get the most out of health fairs, ask you how we can help your practice achieve its goals for 2018, and ask you to take part in a survey for a chance to win a $100 Amazon gift card and to determine the slogan for our next hemorrhoid t-shirts!
Health Fair Tips and Best Practices
We’re right around the corner from Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month and know that many of you will be attending health fairs to educate potential patients about your practice and the procedures you offer.
Since 50% of people suffer from symptomatic hemorrhoids by the age of 50, hemorrhoids certainly draw some attention! In order to help promote the treatment of hemorrhoids and their prevalence within your community, we have a number of materials and “best practices” that can help:
How Can We Help Your Practice During CRC Awareness Month and Beyond?
CRH offers a wide variety of support to our practices and we want to know how we can help you in your outreach during Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month and throughout the year! Below are a few examples to get you thinking but feel free to contact me as this list is by no means exhaustive.
Free Patient Education and Marketing Materials
We offer a wide variety of patient education materials for your practice including brochures, exam room wall charts and HTML-ready web content. The newest additions are our cactus bike seat table tents and wall chart. Call or email me or go to crhorders.com to order.
Health Fairs and Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month
If your practice is attending any health fairs this year, we are happy to provide extra educational materials to hand out as well as some “Got Hemorrhoids?” t-shirts and pens to use as part of a giveaway.
If you’re looking to ramp up banding in 2018, consider getting the word out with some community advertising. And because over 50% of the population suffers from hemorrhoids by age 50, it’s also a great way to attract patients who, in addition to banding, may also need other procedures like colonoscopy. All of our templates can be found HERE and we are happy to personalize them for any medium!
Training for New or Existing Providers
If any new providers have joined your practice recently, let us know if they are interested in being trained to use the CRH O’Regan System! As always, we will send one of our Medical Directors to your practice at no cost to you. Additionally, we are always happy to come back for “refresher” sessions with any previously trained providers to review technique, clinical tips/tricks, troublesome patients, etc. Just let me know and I’ll be happy to coordinate a visit!
New T-Shirt Slogan Contest
While we know the “Got Hemorrhoids?” t-shirts are a popular commodity, we also know that many of you have been looking for another option. The team here has come up with a few ideas and we’d like to ask you to vote for your favorite! Your vote will not only help your favorite slogan get on the next shirt, but you’ll be entered to win a $100 Amazon gift card! VOTE HERE
