Update Your Online Doctor Profile

Patients are looking for you.
Referring physicians are looking for you.
Make it easier to be found!

Thirty percent of the visitors to our websites (advocatehealth.com, amgdoctors.com, and advocatechildrenshospital) are looking for a physician.  To provide an optimal opportunity for both patients and referring physicians to connect with you, we have launched a redesign of online physician profiles and enhanced a paid search campaign to drive more web traffic to your profile.

Be sure to check your profile often to ensure information is current.

The following elements can be updated by completing the HealthAdvisor survey or via your profile page, under your photo – “Update your profile.”

  • Philosophy of care statement: A philosophy of care statement expresses your values, beliefs and reflects what is important to you in the physician/patient relationship. This will help to make a more personal connection with your patient. Look for examples on your fellow physician profiles.

How Do I Add a Profile Video?

Physicians with a profile video are six times more likely to attract patients than those with no video. We are regularly scheduling videos at New Physician Orientations and at hospital sites.

 

To schedule your video, email:  ahc-doctorprofiles@advocatehealth.com.
In your email include the following: Your name, primary hospital location and specialty. We will contact you to coordinate a video sitting.

How Do I Add or Update My Profile Photo?

A photo is an important element of your profile. Some visitors may skip over profiles that do not include a headshot. A referring physician may recognize a face but not know the name.

To schedule your profile photo, contact Advocate’s Media Center at 847.723.5553.
If a photo was taken and not on your profile, contact HealthAdvisor by emailing them at HealthAdvisor-ClientAcctCoordinators@advocatehealth.com.
