New search category assists practice managers with day-to-day business
DARIEN, Conn., Sept. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- SearchMedica.com, the leading search engine for medical professionals, today unveiled a new search category -- Practice Management. The new category connects medical professionals with the best practice management resources available on the Web, including the financial, legal and administrative resources needed to effectively manage a medical practice.
"Doctors who use SearchMedica tell us about the challenges of running a medical practice, such as dealing with third party payers and coding," said Cyndy Finnie, senior product manager for SearchMedica. "The resources available through SearchMedica's Practice Management search category help practice managers run their businesses more efficiently and effectively, allowing them to focus more of their time and energy on patient care."
SearchMedica's Practice Management channel features content and advice from The American College of Physician Executives, PhysiciansPractice.com and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.
SearchMedica provides free, open access to the Web's most authoritative content for medical professionals. By default, SearchMedica returns results from "all of medicine," suitable for any practicing medical professional. Specialists, however, can refine their search into any of nine search categories including cardiovascular, musculoskeletal, pediatric and respiratory disorders, or practice management, for those running their own practices. In keeping with SearchMedica's mission, the practice management search category, like the other disease categories, removes the clutter clinicians encounter on consumer search engines like Google, while providing the professional research and resources they need on an often overlooked topic.
Even before this development, SearchMedica.com was acknowledged for its outstanding user experience as a recipient of a 2007 Standard of Excellence WebAward.
SearchMedica.com indexes only authoritative medical information, approved for inclusion by medical editors and a physician editorial board. Medical professionals receive more relevant, smaller sets of search results from SearchMedica.com than from mainstream engines, which contain consumer-oriented, paid testimonials and other types of unreliable information. Since SearchMedica.com is advertiser supported, medical professionals pay nothing to use the search engine. All SearchMedica search results are independent and unbiased. They contain well-known, credible journals, peer-reviewed research, and evidence-based articles written for practicing healthcare professionals. SearchMedica is currently available at http://www.SearchMedica.com.
