2 days ago · Intranets? in Platforms, Software, and Tools

We currently use Jostle Intranet. It is not an in-house function but I believe there is total control from specific administration and requested access from Staff. I believe it is a good site to use as it has a wide variety of widgets and some personalization for each user.

Although I am not 100 percent sure what our clinic is currently working on for this initiative, I am glad it is being brought up in conversation here. Health equity should be an ongoing topic for all health care systems. Thank you!

Hi Jennifer. We actually continued to work with our local contract photographer throughout the pandemic, although in March and April we ceased production of photos. Now we continue to do them when they are needed. We also do staff photos in house that have started up again. We all wear masks and are able to keep a safe distance during shoots. Are you trying to think of ways to create safety measures to do this?

Dec 26, 2019 · What do you use to send patient e-newsletters? in Platforms, Software, and Tools

From what I know, we can actually create our newsletter through out website's backend and send it out to our patients with a link and subscription. I think we are hoping to make that subscription option on our page available to the public when our next one rolls out.
Maybe see if your website's programming allows that.

Dec 18, 2019 · Do you say “Physicians” or “Providers”? in Give & Get Advice

I think it depends on each organization really. We prioritize and treat our physicians and mid-levels with the same respect in marketing, even if they are just part time. I don't believe (from my perspective) we have any physicians or mid levels that don't like the word provider. We provide trusted, quality medical care. I don't believe they see it as they are providing a service, as if they were a robot.

And even if someone is not trying to create that bait and switch scheme, it sometimes is just easier marketing and organization wide. Like @bethdavidson said, having to create pieces that had physicians, then ARNP, then PA-C, then other mid-levels would be a lot of time not only for the marketing team but even the patients. This is one less step for them and us.
