SAN DIEGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 23, 2019--

Six months since the mergers of CVS-Aetna and Cigna-Express Scripts made waves in the industry, there is significant opportunity and competitive demand for national-scale healthcare providers to take a local approach. As Google cites a 900% increase in “near me” consumer searches and 72% of patients turn to online reviews when selecting a healthcare provider, the industry must adapt to patients searching for doctors much like they find dinner spots.

“In many ways, the healthcare industry has taken massive strides towards embracing the future generation knocking at their door,” says Collin Holmes, Founder and CEO of Chatmeter. “Taking the time to manage reviews and interact with people is an absolute must, but there is still a lot of work to be done in order to stay current, relevant and discoverable across all channels.”

Chatmeter’s Local Brand Report: Reputation’s Role in Healthcare

Highlights of the report include:

Chatmeter’s report finds that as a whole, the healthcare industry is priming itself for success but has room for improvement when it comes to optimizing for emerging technology and consumer demands. Despite the complexity of hyper-sensitive data and stringent regulations, healthcare is notably ahead of retail in regards to review response rates, putting it on the path to Voice Engine Optimization as consumers naturally begin turning to voice devices for medical needs as well as consumer queries.

Chatmeter used real consumer data to determine the biggest areas of opportunity for a brand to increase its visibility in search results and improve the customer experience in the healthcare space.
