Benefits of Choosing Healthcommunities for Your Medical Website:
Instantly Access New Patients through our Online Network
Connect to an Audience Seeking Medical Help - Millions Strong
Since 1998, Healthcommunities has been publishing original, physician-developed and -monitored patient education information on a network of specialty-specific websites (see http://www.HealthCommunities.com). The network attracts millions of visitors who are actively seeking help for medical problems. As a qualifying subscriber to our services, you become listed on our network as a preferred provider.
Healthcommunities ranks highly in popular search engines such as Google™, Bing™ and Yahoo!® for medical keywords people use to find health information online. Each month, these keyword searches bring millions of visitors—actively seeking medical help—to our network of sites. Only qualifying doctors who are Healthcommunities subscribers are featured in this network. People using our proprietary find-a-doctor feature, MDLocator, can now find you at the moment they decide to seek medical care, by entering their city and state or zip code and then clicking a link to your website.
Patients can also find and connect to your medical practice by searching the state lists within the section aligned with your specialty.
This is a powerful second source of patient referral—the first being your website's own search engine presence—that only Healthcommunities can provide.
MDLocator is provided at no extra charge in most of our medical website packages and also is available separately.
Become Your Community's Trusted Voice for Better Patient Health
Educate Patients with Information from Esteemed Sources
As you know, patients tell their family, friends and neighbors about their experience at the doctors. Your practice website will identify you as the health care provider in your community that supplies outstanding service through its patient education initiative.
Through your physician website, you have access to print and online materials from HealthCommunities.com and Remedy Health Media— the preferred publishing partner for the nation's most esteemed medical and research universities including Johns Hopkins Medicine and the University of California, Berkeley, School of Public Health, and the publisher of MediZine's Healthy Living™, Remedy® and Diabetes Focus® magazines.
- Online patient education
Direct patients to your own practice website for reliable, trustworthy medical information. Healthcommunities has more than 500 hundred physician-reviewed articles on a large number of health topics—including general health and wellness information and comprehensive information about common conditions related to your medical specialty. You choose which clinical condition information you make available to patients. You are free to access Healthcommunities patient education materials, provide your own links to other information, or create your own patient education content.
Use the Information Rx pads that come with most website packages (custom-printed tear pads with your practice name and URL) to direct patients to your website.
- Print materials for your office waiting room
Your patients also have access to all that MediZine's Healthy Living™, Remedy® and Diabetes Focus® magazines have to offer. These print publications, which are available free-of-charge for your office waiting room, provide general health information, special features and offers, expert advice, healthy recipes, and lifestyle tips.
Achieve Top Search Engine Placements in Google™, Bing™, Yahoo!®
Grow your Patient Community by Competing for Popular Keywords
The most direct route to achieving a return on your website investment is to attract new patients—patients who find you online. Sixty one percent of browsers now search the web to find solutions to health problems, according to the Pew Research Center. A website that ranks highly in top search engines is better than having a full-page newspaper or Yellow Pages advertisement, a radio spot, or a TV ad, because more Americans are now searching online for health information. From your website, potential patients can learn more about you and your practice and have access to all of your contact information—right at their fingertips. Healthcommunities has been using proprietary SEO techniques to help clients achieve first-page listings in Google and other search engines for 12 years.
Healthcommunities will work with you to make sure prospective patients find you searching for broad, competitive keywords that you choose, such as “urologist in New York.” Healthcommunities has a *proven record* of helping clients accomplish just that through its own proprietary techniques. Call 888.950.0808 for a demonstration of actual client search engine presence.
Ask your personal website manager about how to highlight your areas of expertise, feature information about medical conditions & procedures that YOU choose, and increase the profitability and efficiency of your medical practice.
