A 24 hour Practice is not the future... It's Now! - April 2012
Working within the medical profession, few would argue that lack of time is a major bugbear. And a large majority of that time is spent providing information to patients. If you could provide information to your existing patients or potential new patients, 24 hours a day, 365 days per year, would that not be a good thing? For so many consultants the idea of having a website is simply another drain on valuable resources and for this very reason it is usually last on the list of things to do.
Time is money! Of that there is no doubt. With people working longer hours they don't often get time during normal working hours to find what they are looking for. It's at home in the evening after a days work that people sit down at their computer and search for what they need. Gone are the days of telephone directories, yellow pages and other such paper based directories. If someone is searching for a knee specialist, the internet is what they'll be using. And if you don't even have a website, then that potential patient will find their way to your competitors and be contacting them online to arrange an appointment, all while sitting in the comfort of their home.
Having a website that provides all the information that a potential patient needs will encourage them to make contact in person. Information about common conditions, treatments, and where those treatments take place, as well as maps, directions of how to get there and a biography of the physician, all right there on the screen in front of them, give patients the confidence to make contact and build doctor patient trust.
Having a website that is up to date and provides essential information on your practice is an essential tool in the private healthcare industry. Without it, you're only helping your competitors expand their practices.
