Picture this use case for the smart trip tool (repeated thousands of times a week)
The doctor comes to the room to tell the family that grandma has stage 4 pancreatic cancer and likely only has weeks to live. After he leaves, their immediate thought is to get Bob here to say goodbye, as it has been 5 years since he has seen his mom. And Aunt Ida her younger sister, who is 90, may want to come and spend time with her in her last weeks.
Since the hospital has installed the TripProximity smart trip tool on their website, the nurse points to the colorful magnet on the white board and tells them to simply pass the URL of the page, or text the family the QR code and they can arrange everything. The family is relieved not to think about the logistics and turns their attention back to grandma, wondering if she heard or understand what the doctor said.
Try it. It’s live.
Add the smart trip widget to your site to make things easier for friends and family visiting your patients
“Having the widget for hotels near by the hospital would be so helpful to not only the families/patients, but also the nurses since we are the ones working so closely with the family and patient. Currently I have a few names, addresses, and phone numbers of hotels nearby on a wrinkled piece of paper that I keep with me so I can give that information when asked.”
When you built your website, if you were smart, you had expert advice to help you with the design and the content. Like most healthcare facilities, your primary focus of your website is getting people to choose your facility due to the expertise of your physicians and the level of care that you provide.
Once your hospital has been selected, when there is an accident or pending surgery or a birth, planning a trip quickly becomes a priority. Have you thought about how the friends and families of your patients get to you?
For the first time, you can make it easier for those coming to spend time with your patient by easily answering the question: “Where should I stay?” With TripProximity, your site becomes a 24-hour concierge that provides an integrated answer: “at a hotel nearby.”
Make life easier for the family
When someone is in the hospital, if friends and family come to visit, there is often nowhere for them to stay but in a hotel. By integrating the TripProximity widget into your website, you can share the page location those coming to visit. You make life easier for the family during a difficult time and your team saves time answering “where should I stay?”
Planning ahead for procedures
When a procedure is scheduled, often the patient has to be at the hospital super-early to prepare. Even if the patient is local, if they live more than an hour away, getting there can add angst to an already stressful situation. Suggesting that they come in the night before is an option that would give the patient a good night’s sleep and eliminate the problem of traffic making them late for their procedure.
Make your map smarter
The TripProximity widget can replace your existing map tool or static driving directions. Those coming for a visit can book hotel, flight or get dynamic driving directions to your location. Those coming to visit can focus on their loved one, versus thinking about logistics. The widget pre-populates your location automatically.
Make Giving Back Easy
With TripProximity, every trip can matter to the charities you support. A percentage of the proceeds from travel bookings made on your site are given to your charity of choice annually. And if your hospital is a 501c3 or you have a foundation, we make that donation to you directly on a quarterly basis.
