Episode Info

Episode Info: A healthcare website is a critical element in patient communications even before they become a patient. Setting up and maintaining an active website is not easy and requires specialized skills. On the Get Social Health podcast, Janet Kennedy interviews Ajay Prasad of GMR Webteam and the work they do create and optimizing healthcare websites. Listen to the podcast or drop in on the timestamps below:  Janet:                                00:00                   Five years ago or so, you used to be able to build a website and expect that patients would come. Well nowadays "if you build it. They will come" only works for baseball fields, built in obscure corn fields in the Midwest.

Ajay, welcome to the podcast. Ajay:                                  01:48                   Thanks, Janet for having me. And I'm excited. Janet:                                01:52                   This is a very interesting subject to me because I am involved in a part of this equation, but not the whole equation. And what I mean by that is my partner, Carol Bush and I have a company called the Healthcare Marketing Network and we source freelance healthcare writers, many of whom are clinicians for companies like yours. But in many cases, good content is just one part of a good online presence. So I wanted to talk to you today since your company...
