New York, NY (PRWEB) October 10, 2009
Findadoc.com Inc. continues to lead the competition in the number of innovations that it brings to the lead generation space within the global health care industry.
FindaDoc.com has a number of firsts:
- It was established in 1992 as the first website to provide a portal for patients to physicians and dentists. Before there was WebMD.com, or RevolutionHealth.com or CNN.com, there was FindaDoc.com.
- FindaDoc was also first in developing a system for rating doctors and their office practice. Using a proprietary algorithm, FindaDoc allots 725,000 physicians a score that helps patients decide on a choice of doctors - 'Rated doctors, Informed choices'. Approximately 100,000 dentists have also been added to the website.
NEW - FindaDoc International: Medical Tourism is a rapidly expanding multi-billion dollar growth Area. In India, Thailand or Singapore, the cost of surgery can be one-tenth that in the US. Over 270,000 medical tourists visited Singapore alone in 2004. The medical tourism industry is currently valued at over $20 billion annually. More than 500,000 US citizens were medical tourists last year. Over 1 million medical tourists visited Hungary and Thailand alone. Cost savings as high as 90% is forcing thousands of US, UK and Canadian patients to seek health care overseas. Thus, there are several thousand reasons to advertise on FindaDoc if you are based overseas. And of course, with the globalization of Health care, FindaDoc offers US hospitals a global reach. FindaDoc is now launching a brand new feature - FindaDoc International - in response to this globalization of Health care.
Soon, FindaDoc will initiate a Healthy Score rating system for Patients. This rating score will be based on simple life-style measures. Also proprietary, it will help to generate visitors to the site.
FindaDoc recently announced yet another feature: FindaDoc Stand-By - this Stand-By Appointments feature helps Dentists and Doctors fill up their cancelled appointment slots by offering discounted rates to patients who accept last minute cancellations. Dentists and doctors are often faced with last minute cancellations and have slots they cannot fill. They can offer these slots at discounted rates in real time, to patients that are willing to go on 'stand-by'. The service is offered free to subscribing dentists and doctors.
Forever on the move - FindaDoc is developing an 'app' for the iPhone. The Detect-a-Doc on Find-a- Doc app, is based on the GPS or zip code location of the search. It will provide the location of all doctors and dentists within a few miles radius, complete with Google maps.
FindaDoc offers a comprehensive healthcare website to physicians, dentists, hospitals and patients with outstanding features for all visitors - the FindaDoc Doctor-Patient Community brings Healthcare providers and Patients together.
We are a team of doctors and programmers that created FindaDoc, to make the daunting and sometimes frustrating process of finding the best doctor as simple as possible.
FindaDoc has devised a unique proprietary rating system that helps patients choose from among the 725,000 practicing physicians in the U.S. By rating Doctors on their Training, Expertise, and Patient Opinion, we offer patients a tool that combines verbal recommendations with numerical ratings.
The system is unique - because no other website has it. It is transparent - because the scoring system is based on rules that are fair and openly available. It is also interactive - it allows YOU, the patient, to provide information on details about your doctor that are important to other patients - Bedside Manner, Expertise, Office Staffing, etc. - that directly, and in real time affects the doctor's rating.
