Health Connect South Radio on Midtown Business RadioX Features Healthgrades

ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwired - June 08, 2015) - On May 27, 2015, Health Connect South welcomed to the studio Dr. Brad Bowman and Nickey Scarborough with Healthgrades. Co-hosts CW Hall and Diana Keough spoke with these guests about using population analytics in a health system's marketing efforts to help achieve its goals and deliver a higher level of care and outcomes.

Dr. Bowman is Chief Medical Officer with Healthgrades, a healthcare IT company that provides several valuable services to the community at large as well as to the healthcare industry. One of Healthgrades’ core offerings relates to transparency and healthcare consumerism. "When you need to find a physician to address a particular health need from primary care to a specialist, the company’s website allows the patient and/or their family to conduct a search of their database," explained Bowman.

The Healthgrades platform utilizes a number of available data sources to compile a match score that gives a measure of confidence a particular physician has sufficient experience and positive outcomes to be considered as a viable option for providing care. A patient can search by provider name, specialty, condition, or procedure, along with location.

In addition to providing patients with a list of possible providers, Healthgrades provides prospective patients with access to outcomes and patient satisfaction data across the gamut of service lines and procedures they offer. Scarborough, VP of Digital Editorial for Healthgrades, added, "Patients can review a given hospital’s rank and compare it to the national average for that procedure."

Healthgrades seeks to provide a wide array of readily-available health and consumer data for patients in a given service area to give valuable predictive insights around outcomes for a given health problem. To learn more about their services, listen to the entire interview on Health Connect South Radio.
