Online Health Care Forums
Internet forums devoted to medical, dental, drug, surgery, emotional, specific disease, healthy lifestyle and other healthcare-related topics provide an unparalleled platform for everyday people – primarily patients and patient-family members — to discuss their experiences with medical conditions, practitioners, and treatments.
That’s the general picture. Specifically, adding a forum to your website gives your patients, their loved ones, and your neighbors and friends an opportunity to tell website visitors directed to your site by a search engine or ad how lucky they consider themselves to have you practicing in their community. About how you saved someone’s life. About your staff’s caring attitude. About the confidence they feel preparing for a procedure you’ve advised.
Online or offline, a word-of-mouth recommendation is still the most powerful patient-building tool in the healthcare marketing workshop. What discussions around hot stoves or thundering laundromat machines were in years past, a properly managedmedical website forum is in the Information Age.
