SEATTLE, WA — July 22, 2014 — Sesame Communications, the leading provider of cloud-based solutions to help dental care providers accelerate new patient acquisition and build patient loyalty, is pleased to announce it has received a 2014 Pride “Best of Class” Technology Award. This milestone marks an unprecedented 4th win for Sesame in the past 6 years. This year the company was once again recognized for innovations surrounding its Sesame 24-7™ digital marketing and patient communications system.
“The Pride Institute ‘Best of Class’ Technology Awards are determined by a distinguished panel of industry leaders who both speak nationally and actively see patients,” said, Dr. Lou Shuman, President of Pride Institute. “For Sesame Communications, this 4th award is a testament to their commitment to continuous innovation and contribution to advancing the state-of-the-art in the areas of digital marketing and patient communications for dentistry.”
In the past year Sesame 24-7, the dental industry’s only end-to-end digital marketing and patient engagement system, introduced two ground breaking innovations to help dental practices expand growth and profitability:
- Healthgrades Enhanced Profiles™ for Dentistry – Healthgrades.com is the most trafficked health portal in the United States with more than 225 million annual visitors per year. Healthgrades Enhanced Profiles, which are only available in the field of dentistry from Sesame, give practices a distinct competitive advantage for new patient acquisition through automatic publishing of post appointment patient reviews, featured provider placement and front page positioning of contact information. Other features include a tracked phone number, a click to request an appointment link and a practice website link.
- Mobile Optimized Responsive Design – The world has gone mobile and practices that want to attract and engage patients need to optimize all their patient engagement technologies to all devices including desktops, smartphones and tablets. All Sesame websites and Patient Portals feature responsive design and provide an outstanding user experience for existing and prospective patients.
Practices using Sesame 24-7 routinely experience increased new patient flow, reduced no-show rates, higher production, and increased profitability.
“As technology continues to play an ever-increasing role in practice success, the Pride ‘Best of Class’ Technology Awards help dental practices better understand which companies are on the forefront of innovation with an objective, informed assessment of the best technologies in the industry,” said Diana P. Friedman, CEO of Sesame Communications. “We’re honored to receive this prestigious award for an unprecedented 4th time and gratified the industry recognizes the substantial investments we continue to make in our state-of-the-art technology.”
