As a gastroenterologist you may not be surprised to learn that the second most commonly searched health subject online is diarrhoea – a reflection of the fact that 40% of people in the UK have at least one digestive symptom at any one time. The most frequent problems encountered are abdominal pain, constipation and diarrhoea, indigestion and heartburn.
More and more people are searching online for health information so they can find out about symptoms they may be affected by and many of them will turn to the computer before they turn to a friend to ask for advice and before they make an appointment with their doctor.
As gastric symptoms are so common and the Internet so popular it makes good business sense for a gastroenterologist to have an online presence.
Having a uniquely Chits created consultant website will ensure that people who find your site will have access to reputable medical information they can trust. A health information library will keep them informed on numerous gastroenterology topics from something as simple as bloating to more serious conditions like inflammatory bowel disease and colon cancer.
Regularly updating your health library will keep your site visitors coming back for more and this will increase the number of enquiries you receive and the number of people who follow through with an appointment.
‘Going digital’ in your practice will also make life easier for you and your patients. Doctors who spend less time on paperwork, talk more to patients and are easily accessible via email and online chat, get and retain more patients. Chits can assist in “digitising” your processes to work seamlessly online. Call us for your free complementary discussion on 020 8381 3000.
