Oct. 18, 2011 - PRLog -- Worcester, MA – Charter, and its local TV station Charter TV3, have launched Worcester.MD, an online healthcare service that provides local physician and healthcare network information to area residents. Worcester.MD serves as a convenient source to help local consumers access a healthcare network in their own "backyard," in order to better manage individual healthcare needs by providing dependable medical information, as well as rating physicians so that others in the community can select the best physician for their needs.

According to Pew Research Center, 8 in 10 internet users search online for health-related solutions, making it the third highest use of an online search. Using today’s health information technology to manage personal health information has become an important part of a changing healthcare system. Both patient and doctor can better manage health care by improving communication between the two, as well as maintaining up-to-date personal health information.

As a leader in providing fast and reliable Internet service, Charter has become a valuable home resource for improving the Worcester community’s ability to effectively manage their healthcare wellness.

Residents in the Worcester area are the first in the New England area to have access to this type of online service for local residents. Charter, along with Charter TV3, have teamed up with YourCity.MD, a hyper-local health care platform which operates over 500 city-specific healthcare websites, and are the developers of the One-Click Help™ search engine.  

Worcester.MD also helps grow and improve a physician’s healthcare practice through a physician rating/patient feedback system that serves as a dependable source of referrals, as well as opens the line of communication between physician and patient.

Charter TV3 will integrate local healthcare experts from Worcester.MD into its “Health Watch,” a regular feature of Worcester News Tonight.
