why your medical practice should have a great website
Having a website for your medical practice is much more than a way to get new patients.
It is a way to position yourself as an expert and a resource and to serve your patients in ways that you couldn't before.
A well designed and thoughtfully planned website establishes your presence in the medical community.
It will position your practice as current and modern, as well as technologically and medically up-to-date.
Your website will give confidence to referring physicians and validation to referred and new patients.
A website gives physicians a platform to list their bios, areas of expertise, and credentials.
In addition, it is an opportunity to tout your expertise by publishing any articles or studies
you have authored.
You can offer conveniences to your patients in ways you could not before:
- automated prescription refills
- email appointment reminders
- appointment scheduling
- posting directions to your office
You will serve better your patients who more and more prefer to find information online anyway.
(4) Better patients, better doctors
Posting medical information, resources, physician bios, or even simple links to other sources is first-class service to a patient seeking answers to their specific and personal questions.
Answering commonly asked medical questions on your website will make patients more informed, in turn making their questions more informed and maximizing your limited appointment time
(5) Grow your practice
The internet has replaced the Yellow Pages as the new way to find goods and services, and the medical services field is no exception.
Patients--and referring doctors--are looking for you. Your practice can grow significantly if you can be easily found.
(6) Office efficiency
Your office staff will enjoy a reduced call volume for information that can be answered simply online:
- insurance questions
- what to bring
- automated appointment reminders
- what to expect on your first visit
- forms to fill out ahead of time
