PatientPop: Leaders in Practice Growth


In a 2019 survey of U.S. healthcare providers, 90 percent said they practice in a competitive market; more than one-third define their market situation as highly competitive. Today’s patients are active healthcare consumers, with more places to seek care—virtual telehealth visits, walk-in clinics, urgent care centers—and immediate online access to information. As a result, practice growth has become a key goal for medical practices.

A practice growth solution helps doctors and other providers capitalize on the way patients now look for and assess care. The right platform empowers doctors to achieve high-performance business goals and ongoing growth in the digital world.

Leading the way in the practice growth category is PatientPop. The company’s practice growth technology platform, which includes a comprehensive telehealth solution, enhances and automates each touchpoint in the patient experience, from the first impression a doctor conveys online to online appointment scheduling and post-visit follow-up.

PatientPop makes it easy for healthcare providers to promote their practice, attract more patients, and retain them for life. The company’s platform brings together the tools and tactics necessary for a complete growth strategy including patient acquisition, retention marketing, and business insights. The company’s technology also invites patients to share their opinions and feedback with healthcare practices, generating testimonials that help practices establish and maintain a solid, influential online reputation for their brand.

The company was founded in 2014 and is headquartered in Santa Monica, California.


PatientPop was founded by Luke Kervin and Travis Schneider, two experienced entrepreneurs who serve as the company’s co-CEOs. PatientPop is their third successful venture and was created to help healthcare providers thrive by delivering a digital, convenient level of connection and service to patients. Over the past six years, the company has changed how healthcare practices manage and promote their business, and deliver a better patient experience.

The company’s healthcare technology platform helps practices attract more patients, manage their online reputation, modernize the patient experience, and automate their front office. PatientPop also integrates its platform with the most widely used electronic medical record systems.

The Galvanizing Aspects of PatientPop

PatientPop uses multiple customer feedback channels to continuously track satisfaction, develop and refine its platform, and improve the customer experience. The PatientPop practice growth technology is the first on the market with a single platform designed to help practices respond to evolving patient habits.

Service Excellence

  • PatientPop addresses a major gap in the healthcare industry: the lack of technology used by medical practices to help them thrive and make the patient experience more convenient. Without PatientPop, practices are left to cobble together piecemeal solutions from multiple vendors, resulting in excessive cost and a lack of visibility into performance metrics.
  • PatientPop helps healthcare providers thrive by transforming the healthcare experience into an easier, more positive journey for patients.
