In today’s healthcare landscape, efficiency is key. Telehealth has risen as a game-changer, with more people turning to it than ever before.
And if you’re working in the healthcare industry as a practitioner, it can be daunting to be available 24/7 to address each patient’s concerns.
Luckily, telehealth provides the needed solution.
According to a survey published in 2023, the number of people using telehealth was highest during COVID-19, and it slumped a bit after. However, it was still higher than pre-pandemic levels.
So, if you’re thinking about leveraging telehealth, consider the opportunities that Kiwi Health provides for listing management with its collaboration with Zocdoc.
In a dynamic fusion of innovation, these two platforms have converged, redefining how healthcare practitioners like mental health providers access medical care.
Embark on a journey to unravel the realm of Zocdoc, a pioneering appointment booking channel, as it intertwines with Kiwi Health, promising convenience, and comprehensive healthcare solutions.
In an era of digital convenience, embracing online healthcare booking platforms has become a prudent choice for patients and healthcare providers.
These platforms, such as Zocdoc, offer a myriad of benefits that revolutionize the healthcare landscape:
Online healthcare booking platforms eliminate the need for arduous phone calls and prolonged wait times. Patients can conveniently schedule appointments at any time, from anywhere, empowering them with control over their healthcare journey.
Initial screenings can be done online through virtual visits, where healthcare providers ask their patients for general information to gather data.
The days of flipping through calendars to find suitable in-person appointments are over. These platforms provide real-time visibility into appointment availability, enabling patients to select their preferred time slot swiftly.
For healthcare providers, online booking platforms streamline administrative tasks. Doctor’s appointment confirmations, cancellations, and rescheduling are automated, allowing staff to focus on more intricate aspects of patient care.
Around one-quarter to one-third of the healthcare expenditures in the United States are attributed to administrative costs—significantly surpassing the essential fee for efficient healthcare.
This surplus of administrative burden leads to elevated expenses for healthcare providers, insurance companies, and patients.
By digitizing the appointment process, healthcare organizations can reduce costs associated with traditional paper-based scheduling systems. Patients save time that would otherwise be spent on hold or at the front desk.
Online booking platforms often categorize healthcare providers based on their specialties. This makes it easier for patients to find their expertise, even in a niche field.
Patients can share their experiences and leave reviews after appointments. This feedback helps other patients make informed decisions and incentivizes healthcare providers to maintain high service standards.
Telemedicine and virtual appointments are increasingly integrated into online booking platforms. This flexibility accommodates patients who prefer remote consultations and broadens healthcare access to those with mobility constraints.
Online care platforms transcend the traditional appointment scheduling paradigm, ushering in a new era of patient-centric care that thrives on accessibility, efficiency, and engagement.
Zocdoc is a platform boasting remarkable traffic rates in the United States, particularly among patients seeking doctors for appointment bookings.
Its reputation for trustworthiness and credibility among patients is already well-established. Therefore, having your profile on Zocdoc grants you entry into a substantial patient base that inherently trusts the platform.
This advantage holds even for new providers who may need more reviews solely due to the elevated credibility associated with being present on Zocdoc.
At Kiwi Health, we’ve built a long-standing relationship with Zocdoc, allowing us to get your profile live on their platform within a week. If you were to go this route alone, you’d likely have to deal with customer support, share intricate details, and perform a lot of legwork that Kiwi Health can handle for you.
Our partnership isn’t just superficial; it’s founded on substantial interactions between the leadership of both companies. This strong bond enhances the service quality and benefits we bring to healthcare providers.
Being an exclusive partner with Zocdoc provides us with tips and tricks to optimize your profile that aren’t generally available to the public. For instance, if you’re licensed in multiple states, we can leverage our partnership to get you listed in all relevant areas, providing a wider reach than if you were to do it independently.
The best part about Zocdoc? It’s for everyone. No matter your specialty or practice model – whether you’re telehealth or in-person, accept insurance or out-of-network – Zocdoc has a place for you. It’s the number one platform in the U.S. for finding a doctor, making it a universally beneficial partnership.
Compared to the potential route of engaging directly with Zocdoc, which could involve navigating customer support, sharing your particulars, and engaging in extensive administrative efforts, we undertake these tasks on your behalf once you furnish your profile details.
This is where the beauty of Zocdoc shines.
It caters to all specialties, whether you offer telehealth services, in-person consultations, accept insurance, operate out of network, or belong to a group practice. Zocdoc’s status as the premier platform in the US for locating doctors for consultations underscores its relevance for everyone.
In the realm of healthcare accessibility and provider-patient connectivity, Zocdoc emerges as a dominant force, offering a streamlined gateway for patients to connect with their ideal healthcare providers.
Through this strategic partnership, the path to harnessing Zocdoc’s potential has become expedited and enriched.
Choosing Kiwi Health means gaining swift access to Zocdoc’s expansive patient base and benefiting from the expertise and exclusive insights that can elevate your profile to new heights.
The established relationship with Zocdoc empowers Kiwi Health to facilitate a seamless onboarding process, sparing you the potential intricacies of dealing directly with the platform.
