Solutionreach Adds Patient Video Survey Service
Product: Solutionreach Video Survey Service
Top Line: Solutionreach has developed a video survey service, SR Video, which enables an eye care practice to capture patient feedback and share it online.
Close Up: When a patient stops at the front desk following their appointment, the receptionist or office manager asks them if they would like to record a brief video testimonial. If the patient agrees, they can verbally answer a few questions while SR Video records their answers on a video camera that is either located in the computer or can be plugged into it. SR Video automatically locates any video feed connected to the computer, web cam or not. SR Video will also automatically use the computer's or camera's internal microphone for sound. The entire process can take as little as three minutes, according to Solutionreach.
Once a video testimonial is captured, practices can have it automatically uploaded to popular video sites like Google and Youtube. Hundreds of video testimonials created with SR Video already exist on the web, such as
this short testimonial from one of Solutionreach’s most active SR Video users in optometry. The Solutionreach web site currently has a demo video of SR Video available to watch within the Demo Center at
