WebMD Choice Awards can help your brand
WebMD began awarding hospitals and health systems the WebMD® Patient Choice Award and Medscape® Provider Choice Award in 2021. The awards program identifies the “best in class” health systems in a local region from a consumer perspective, at the point in which that patient and/or loved one is actively seeking care for a specific condition. In addition, it identifies healthcare providers' perspectives on which health systems in their area they consider to be best for care. This unique vantage point is the first of its kind in the healthcare industry. The WebMD Patient Choice Award, Medscape Provider Choice Award, and WebMD Elite Choice Award selects health systems based on consumer and healthcare provider preferences in 28 regions across five specialties: Oncology, Cardiology, Orthopedics, Neurology, and Gastroenterology.
Utilize the preference for your hospital in service line marketing programs in the markets you serve. Use award badges in your ad creative for digital ads, social ads, social posts, print, and direct mail.
