Yext, Inc. (NYSE: YEXT), the Search Experience Cloud company, and WebMD Health Corp. today announced a new data integration that enhances the accurate, up-to-date health care provider information patients and consumers find at WebMD Care and Vitals, WebMD’s provider directory platforms.
More than 76 million people visit WebMD each month for information and tools to support them in managing their health, and WebMD Care and Vitals consumer platforms generate more than 10 million visits per month from people searching for healthcare providers.
With the collaboration, hospitals and healthcare systems serviced by Yext can manage key data about their providers on both platforms, including which insurances they accept, their medical specialty, languages spoken, whether they are accepting new patients, and more.
“We’re pleased that our data integration with WebMD can continue to drive reliable health provider information into the hands of consumers and patients, particularly at a time when trust in information is paramount,” said Carrie Liken, Head of Industry for Healthcare at Yext.
“Today, patients have access to more healthcare information online than ever before, but it can be difficult to separate what is current from what is not,” said Paul Bar, Group Vice President, Product Marketing and Product, WebMD. “WebMD’s data enhancement integration with Yext supports our mission to deliver the most reliable, up-to-date information and tools to help consumers and patients manage their health.”
