SANTA MONICA, Calif. — PatientPop, the leader in practice growth technology, today announced the PatientPop practice growth solution now supports voice search on Amazon Alexa devices through a partner.
Though Amazon introduced its first Alexa-enabled device just four years ago, one in six American adults (16 percent) already owns a smart speaker, according to surveys from NPR and Edison Research. This rapid adoption greatly affects healthcare practices, because more patients are using voice search to find information about their businesses.
“Our mission is to help practices thrive, and to do that, we must monitor emerging technology trends, anticipate changes in behavior, and continually innovate our solution to meet patients’ evolving expectations,” said Luke Kervin, PatientPop Co-Founder and Co-CEO. “We’ve already observed an uptick in voice search, and we expect even more patients will use voice search to find quality care, because major companies like Amazon continue to develop technologies to make voice assistants even smarter.”
Patients using Alexa-enabled devices can use voice search to receive the most up-to-date information about PatientPop customer practices, including contact information, hours of operation, locations, and more. For example, a patient can ask Alexa, “What is the address of [your practice name]?”, or “What’s the phone number for [your practice name]?” PatientPop customers reap the benefit of this new offering immediately without any action required.
PatientPop already provides accurate business information to the most widely used digital business and healthcare directories on behalf of its customers, to help establish a strong online presence and ensure widespread visibility. And unlike other medical website or medical marketing companies, PatientPop uses structured data (also commonly known as schema) to create sites that search engines can easily understand and surface for relevant search queries.
