The Internet has fundamentally redefined how Americans connect with physicians. In this white paper, ZocDoc draws on recent studies and expertise from digital healthcare leaders to interpret these changes. We provide a vendor evaluation document and an interactive return-on-investment calculator (see Appendices A and B) to help healthcare providers determine the optimal marketing mix for their practices. We illustrate the costs and benefits of social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and LinkedIn, and detail best practices when appropriate. A method for obtaining positive reviews and attenuating negative reviews is described; it is demonstrated that an average 37 percent increase in appointments results from each half-star improvement to a provider’s online rating profile. We close by outlining the patient satisfaction and loyalty healthcare providers can accrue by offering online booking and related transactional services, which are preferred by 81 percent of consumers.
