How to best generate referrals without seeming unprofessional is a key concern for medical professionals, according to the survey conducted in July 2010 by BAC Medical Marketing.
According to our survey, which includes responses from 388 healthcare professionals in a variety of specialties, more than 37% receive greater than 41% of their new patients via referrals from other professionals. Referrals from existing patients, on the other hand, are a much smaller percentage: The majority of respondents reported that they receive only 11-20% of their referrals from existing patients.
The survey also revealed such interesting points as:
• Nearly 35% are seeing more professional referrals now than a year ago
• More than 43% are receiving more patient referrals now than a year ago
• In excess of 75% of respondents don’t identify their professional referrers by level
The survey also revealed the most popular tactics for both patient and professional referrals, how practice representatives are compensated and how often they visit other practices, and much more.
