Thousands of Health Care Providers Enhance Online Profiles
Date:4/2/2009

More than 5,000 providers have enhanced their profiles on myRegence.com giving patients additional information about their doctor

PORTLAND, Ore., April 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Regence is helping members make more informed health care choices by enabling participating health care providers to share key information about their practice.

In 10 minutes or less, providers within Regence networks can enhance their profile page on myRegence.com with key information such as appointment availability, extended hours, Web site URL and practice philosophy.

This joint effort between Regence and participating physicians simplifies providers' ability to attract and educate new and existing patients. And by sharing important features of their practice, members can now more easily find providers most aligned with their needs.

Additionally members have the ability to sort data, filter it down to specific items and compare providers in similar categories.

"Our goal is to facilitate the best fit between providers and their patients and to help make it easier to navigate the health care system," said David Clark, senior vice president of Health Care Services for Regence. "With this enhancement to myRegence.com, we are making it easier for providers to communicate who they are and how they practice medicine and thereby hopefully make the process of picking a doctor or facility a better experience for everyone."

Regence already offers members a provider search tool, and this enhancement will enable Regence members to determine whether a provider sees patients like them and to choose the provider based on:

  • Practice areas of expertise
  • Appointment availability/accepting new patients
  • Awards and other distinctions
  • Patient demographics (i.e., average age and
