Our new, unprecedented medical search engine further strengthens YourCity.MD's local and regional healthcare business model, bringing value to local media partners and businesses who want to reach online healthcare consumers that seek health and wellness services in their specific city, state or regional markets
CINCINNATI (PRWEB) October 20, 2008
To see how the Relief Center™ works, go to http://www.Cincinnati.MD or any one of YourCity.MD's 500 city or state .MD sites, and type in a symptom or condition in the search box. For a full listing of .MD city and states, go to http://www.yourcity.md/yourcity/allcities.aspx.
For example, a young parent searching for information on influenza on Cincinnati.MD, would not only receive a listing of flu information, but local Cincinnati pediatricians (listed in order of patient ratings) and local flu resources, such as nearby flu shot clinics and products.
"We understand that consumers are interested in accurate and timely online health information, and our One-Click Relief Center is the only engine that links medical information to local resources, doctors and products to help patients get immediate help without the need for further searching," said Joe Benza, founder and CEO of YourCity.MD. "We also give local and regional healthcare providers and retail clinics a way to reach consumers seeking their services."
In response to three major developments in healthcare – consumer-directed healthcare, online health resources and retail health clinics – YourCity.MD's One-Click Relief Center™ search engine delivers a one-click "search and find" feature so that every consumer, no matter where they live, can instantly get the same quality health information and access to local and regional healthcare resources and providers.
"We've seen doctor ratings take off, but that has been happening in a vacuum. Some analysts have described our search engine as 'find a doctor on steroids' since we link up the search for health information to specific local doctors and then, with the same search, give consumers a look at patient feedback on those same doctors," said Dr. Michael Barber, chief medical officer at YourCity.MD.
"Our new, unprecedented medical search engine further strengthens YourCity.MD's local and regional healthcare business model, bringing value to local media partners and businesses who want to reach online healthcare consumers that seek health and wellness services in their specific city, state or regional markets," said Benza. "We not only own the best real estate corners on the Internet, but are just starting to build the first healthcare skyscrapers in those spaces."
