More and More Doctors are Getting Personal Websites. Here's Why:
Every business can benefit from a website; medical practices and healthcare providers are no exception. A website's job is to highlight key information. Here are just a few benefits to having a website site for a medical practice as well as a personal PROVIDER-Site for each provider.
1. Lists Services, Payment Information, And Online Appointment Scheduling
It is important for a medical site to include a list of services provided, as well as a list of the insurances accepted and payment information. This can help a potential patient decide if the practice or provider offers the treatments they are interested in. They also appreciate a list of payment information and accepted insurances the medical office accepts therefore if their insurance plan isn't covered, they do not have to waste their time calling to verify. Make sure special payment plans or financial services are available on the website as well. Providing an online appointment scheduling function is major for patients especially because we are in an age where many patient would prefer not to pick up the phone and call to find this information. Why not eliminate that thought?
2. Allows Patients To Access Forms, Registration Information, And Records
One great aspect of medical websites is that the site provides a way for patients to download forms, including registration, HIPAA, or insurance documentation. Patients can print these documents at home and have them completed before their appointment. This makes paperwork more convenient for the patient and the medical staff, and reduces time both between appointments and in the waiting room. EHR Patient Portals have gained popularity and are an excellent way for patients to access to their health records online. Dr. Leonardo provides a clear and visible option to link a patient portal to a PRACTICE-Site as well as a PROVIDER-Site.
3. Provides Informative Resources For Patients
Another helpful addition to medical websites is the ability to provide relevant and educational resources for patients. Many people are accustomed to finding information on the Internet, but they become frustrated when it's inaccurate or unavailable. Providing well-written medical information and resources on a website helps patients find information that falls in line with medically appropriate treatment plans. By offering this information, a medical practice or provider can become a reputable source of information that patients can trust.
Dr. Leonardo makes this easy by providing more than 8,000 conditions, treatments and procedures in the Patient Education Library. It is written for the patient with carefully selected and reliable sources. Patients will feel more confident about their healthcare decisions and the doctors can edit any content to hone in on specific strengths of theirs.
