There is a huge population of patients feeling unfulfilled with the email communications arriving from their doctors office. There are a wide-range of dynamic, simple and engagement-focused email signature platforms that you can use to connect routinely and professionally with your patient-base. For example, WiseStamp.com works with Outlook, Gmail, Hotmail and Yahoo (among others) and integrates easily into you practice by allowing you to customize your email signature by adding your logo, latest blog post, Tweet, Facebook Status or professional headshot/profile picture into your email. And while most doctors and medical practice managers dread opening up their email account and replying to the numerous emails they receive every day, you should know that you can use these messages as a way to help promote your private medical practice, your website or even upcoming promotions and events.
