Birmingham, AL (PRWEB) September 30, 2013
Vitals, a leader in providing online tools for healthcare consumers to connect with providers, and MEDSEEK, the only provider of a strategic patient influence platform, announced today that they will partner to help consumers make more informed health decisions.
As healthcare moves away from almost exclusively physical to numerous online touch points, hospitals today are facing a challenging transition in the way they interact with consumers. MEDSEEK is bridging the gap by helping hospitals and health systems better predict the needs of individuals, convert high value prospects into loyal patients, and empower patients to make better health-related choices so they can live longer, healthier lives.
“By engaging prospects and patients online, MEDSEEK gives hospitals the power to further influence decisions that positively affect patient care and revenue,” states Dale Edwards, Executive Vice-President of Sales and Marketing for MEDSEEK. “Partnering with Vitals provides an additional avenue to help healthcare organizations connect consumers with the right providers and facilities, increasing appointments and patient loyalty.”
With over 13 million visits each month, vitals.com is the reliable source for patients seeking appointments with a provider. Using Vitals Patient Link, hospitals can offer patients the convenience of enhanced physician profiles and bios, which will help them make informed decisions and easily book appointments directly on the site. With 85% of Vitals’ users seeing a physician within 30 days of visiting the site, implementing Vitals Patient Link helps healthcare organizations attract patients to their facilities.
When patients find the provider that best meets their needs, it encourages trusted relationships, improved care and overall health. “With the information that Vitals and MEDSEEK provide online, patients can find the right physician and health facility and therefore make better decisions for their health,” states David Blumenthal, Vice President of Sales and Account Management for Vitals. “With consistent branding and physician information on the hospital’s website and the Vitals site, patients are able to easily connect with hospitals they trust and make appointments to see those providers.”
