You Don’t Need a Website Unless It Produces Results

By Stewart Gandolf, Chief Executive Officer

The highly competitive, new-patient battleground among healthcare providers—doctors, hospitals and health systems—is online via your Internet presence.

Prospective patients (including family and friends) shop for healthcare services and providers online before making their purchase decisions. In the retail world, nearly 90 percent of consumers do their online homework. The numbers are nearly the same for people who are in the process of evaluating and selecting a doctor or hospital.

Why your Internet presence is vital…

The online skirmish between you and competitive colleagues happens long before the new patient calls for an appointment, and most practices have no idea how their website stacks up against the competition. Search Engine Optimization plays a big part in being found online.

A strong Internet presence includes your website, social media accounts, blog, YouTube Channel and other interrelated digital faces. And collectively, this:

  • Communicates your brand and branding message
  • Represents and extends your reputation
  • Establishes credibility with the audience
  • Informs, educates and connects with patients and prospective patients
  • Is constantly available to the online audience
  • Tells your story and points of differentiation

The bottom line is that it engages and attracts prospective patients. And you don’t need a website unless it’s producing these and other measurable and meaningful results.
