HealthLynked Unveils Advanced Search Functionality to Improve Patient Care
NAPLES, Fla., Dec. 13, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — HealthLynked Corp. (OTCQB: HLYK), a leader in the global healthcare network industry, today announced the launch of a highly anticipated search functionality update on its website and mobile applications. This enhancement marks a significant milestone in HealthLynked’s journey to transform healthcare accessibility and connectivity.
Research shows that 67% of patients prefer to search for and book appointments online or through an app, with 40% being booked after business hours. HealthLynked’s new search functionality and enhanced features help HealthLynked members find the right providers that best suit their individual health needs.
The new search functionality on the HealthLynked platform includes the following key features:
- A refined provider search algorithm that efficiently locates the right healthcare providers. With the integration of new filters by date and time, users can now select their preferred appointment date and time ahead of their search, facilitating faster and more convenient appointment booking. This new functionality provides HealthLynked members with 24 / 7 access for making appointments.
- The update also introduces a new geolocation-driven distance filter, enabling users to refine their search based on proximity and find doctors and practices closer to their current location.
- Provider ratings are now a part of the search criteria, allowing patients to narrow their results by selecting doctors based on their provider rating scores. This feature is aimed at helping patients make more informed decisions when choosing healthcare providers. This feature is especially useful and important for HealthLynked members, since almost 75% of patients rely on reviews as the first step in finding a doctor, according to a survey in the Journal of Marketing.
- With improved filtering options, users can effortlessly switch their search between doctors or practices without needing to navigate to another page, thereby reducing navigation time and boosting search speed.
