About 25% of U.S. adults consulted online physician-rating sites, and more than a third of them went to a physician or avoided one based on the ratings, according to a recent study by researchers at the University of Michigan and published in the Journal of the American Medical Association.
Now a days a physician's online reputation and star rating is their first point of reference for patient acquisition even if the physician is unaware of it. Patients now search for doctors like they would for a restaurant or mechanic, by going to search engines and review sites to read how the experience is for other patients. Many physicians are unaware that 79% of consumers trust online reviews as much as personal recommendations, that is almost 8 of of 10 people; so what is being said online matters to maintain patient growth and retention.
Rank Zoom offers physicians and physician groups a technology platform that allows patients who have actually paid for a product or service to submit a verified review which will help increase star ratings and consumer confidence. The Platform also monitors major review sites as well as medical industry specific sites to maintain brand reputation. Positive online reviews will allow physician practices to acquire new patients while the program also provides existing patients a platform to be heard.
