ABPS Physician Board Certification Now Listed on Healthgrades.com
Physician board certification through Member Boards of the American Board of Physician Specialties® (ABPS) is now listed on the physician referral website, Healthgrades.com. With more than 30 million patients conducting research on providers listed on Healthgrades.com each month, it is crucial that all of a physician’s training, qualifications and areas of expertise are listed in detail. Physicians who hope to compete in an increasingly complex medical marketplace must keep their Healthgrades profiles up to date, and ABPS Diplomates whose certification is not listed can add it to their profiles through the website’s physician portal at healthgrades.com/update/abps.
In addition to ABPS physician board certification, there are dozens of details that help differentiate physicians on the Healthgrades.com site, including:
- Conditions treated
- Treatment philosophy
- Procedures performed
- Hospital affiliation(s)
- Patient satisfaction ratings
- Malpractice filings or sanctions (if any)
Healthgrades.com is quickly becoming one of the most effective tools for patient referrals, thanks in part to the in-depth data available on each physician. Patients who find outdated information about a physician are less likely to click through to request an appointment. Conversely, patients who see ABPS physician board certification confirmation on Healthgrades.com know that the specialist has proven that he or she possesses the knowledge and experience to provide the best patient care available.
