What do people see when they Google your practice or facility? Is your information correct in important healthcare directories such as Vitals? Are you listed everywhere patients are searching?
These are important questions that all healthcare organizations should be asking themselves.
Why? Because based on recent research, there’s a good chance that the information people are finding about you online isn’t fully accurate. An analysis of more than 15,000 facility and physician online directory and search engine listings found:
That’s right—nearly one-third of all facilities and practitioners lack any local listings, and close to half of all healthcare listings are inaccurate!
Inaccurate information risks compromising the quality of your patients’ experience before they even reach your doors. And with most people (80%) now searching online for health information, that’s one risk you can’t take.
