#1 – Personalized Communication

Ongoing educational campaigns are an excellent way to provide value to your contacts. In allied health practice management, a personal connection with your patients is crucial.

Your patients (past, present and potential future) value helpful, interesting content from you. AI-driven tools can now make that process easier. They can assist in content creation, personalization, and contextual follow-up.

These systems allow you to keep an ongoing conversation with your patients. This strengthens their connection with your practice. It can increase your patient’s wellness, and your average patient visits, both at the same time.

There are several AI-powered tools available  to increase efficiency and quality. Workflow tools to create workflows as a series of digital tasks, initiated by a trigger. Robotic Process Automation (RPA) allows you to script repeating series of user actions. Gen AI can even be used to generate custom scripts, if you understand the concepts of programming. All of these tasks are now much easier with AI assists.

Utilizing AI tools like Zapier and ChatGPT, along with Robotic Process Automation (RPA) technologies, can transform these tasks from time-consuming necessities to streamlined, automated processes. Here’s a brief overview of how these tools can be leveraged effectively:
