Too irrelevant to the team leader.
Such are the complaints heard repeatedly about Performance Management and Engagement systems.
And these don’t even touch on the biggest problem of all: current systems produce a tidal wave of unreliable data. The ratings they yield are based on the notion that, with enough time and training, managers (and peers) can become reliable raters of other people’s skills and competencies. Sadly, that’s not true. A large body of research reveals:
61% of your manager’s rating of you is a reflection of the
manager, not of you. Your organization, apparently unaware of this, then persists on paying you, training you, and promoting you—and everyone else in the organization—based on these flawed ratings.
Imagine a young, urban couple with their third baby on the way. They’re ready to make the oft-dreaded leap to a minivan, and it’s time to decide on a brand and a model. While dad checks safety ratings and online reviews, mom calls her friends to ask how they like their own vans. Together, they review and compare features on the manufacturer’s website and later “build” their dream minivan, choosing colors, fabrics, floor mats, and other accessories—all without leaving their living room. Perfect car in hand and confident that they’ve chosen the best one for their needs, they arrive at the dealership and walk onto the showroom floor, ready to finally meet their salesperson.

1. Meet the new healthcare consumer
The consumerization of healthcare, major demographic shifts, and the migration
to mobile and social media are tilting the balance of power away from traditional
healthcare marketers and into the hands of potential patients.
2. Online reputation is the new competitive frontier for marketers
Healthcare brands are no longer controlled by marketers. Patient feedback about
doctors and facilities online is leading to total market transparency for healthcare
consumers. CG-CAHPS surveys only go so far in providing social proof.
3. Healthcare branding is becoming hyper-local
In the search for providers, all branding is local – at the level of individual
practitioners and facilities. Proliferating points of presence on the web make this
a challenge that requires technology. But healthcare marketers who scale online
review volume and quality will be rewarded with higher search visibility.
4. Business implications
Online ratings and reviews stand between everyth

Email and push have been the primary channels for interacting with customers. However, according to Ben Clark, Vice President of Customer Retention, the marketing team previously struggled to deliver consistent, relevant messaging across channels because their email and push tools ran on separate platforms.
The old tools were also cumbersome to use and offered limited functionality. Worse yet, they didn’t support the team’s AI driven, omni-channel marketing strategy, which includes rea

Brand perception begins online, with the local online reputation of doctors, clinics and hospitals.
In late 2017, Reputation.com set out to understand how consumers use the internet to look for healthcare services online, particularly when interacting with healthcare-related ratings and reviews. We surveyed healthcare consumers across the U.S. in a representative range of demographic groups for answers to some key questions:
• What are consumers and patients really looking for in online reviews?
• What ratings and review factors are most important when choosing a doctor?
• What sites are most used and trusted for this information?
Findings confirmed that online reviews are an essential part of the healthcare consumer’s decision-making. In this report, we’ll look at the key findings in detail

In 2017, review sources proliferated, consumers became more savvy about the validity of online
reviews, and the position of Chief Experience Officer started to gain traction among locationbased
organizations. ORM and SEO became increasingly intertwined as Google refined its search
algorithms with a strong emphasis on reviews and star ratings.
This year, expect to see these four trends move to the forefront:
1) Google will extend its dominance in online review volume and consumer exposure, eclipsing all
other specialty sites.
2) SEO will be reinvented as user-generated reviews weigh more heavily in search rankings.
3) The voice of the customer will no longer be siloed across disconnected categories.
4) Consumer feedback from reviews and social media will drive operational improvements.
