If you have ever visited Healthgrades to research, select and make appointments with physicians, you may have noticed that our site has been recently upgraded. Our new site functionality better addresses the evolving ways consumers search for a provider online and helps enable more meaningful connections between consumers, providers and hospitals. This includes an enhanced experience when you:
Research and compare providers
According to recent research commissioned by Healthgrades, consumers are 82% more likely to book an appointment if the information available about a physician includes experience, patient satisfaction scores and the quality of hospitals where they practice. The new Healthgrades website now offers expanded provider profiles to help consumers determine the right provider and facility for quality care.
Select a provider
The Healthgrades website also offers tailored search results based on criteria that is important to consumers. More than 75% of consumers that use Healthgrades research more than one physician. Consumers can find physicians who fit their specific needs, such as insurance, gender, patient satisfaction, and the ability to find physicians that treat more than 12,000 conditions and procedures most often.
Book an appointment
The Healthgrades website now provides more convenient options for consumers to quickly connect with healthcare providers. Consumers can now search for a provider by appointment availability and whether they accept new patients. Health systems across the country, including Oschner Health System and Mississippi Baptist have already integrated online appointment scheduling capabilities through the Healthgrades website, and many others will be quick to follow suit.
The upgraded site and search experience on Healthgrades.com keeps consumers in the driver seat, making it simpler and more convenient than ever to find a provider and hospital that’s right for their care. It also helps hospitals and health systems reach and engage consumers like never before, ensuring they are top-of-mind when consumers embark on their healthcare journey.
