Nearly 1/5 of all Americans suffer from arthritis, and the rheumatologist is the specialist working hard to ease the patient’s pain and keep their joints moving happily. Yet when the patient feels the pain setting in, the doctor’s office is surprisingly not the first stop for information in today’s world. Instead, over 70% of Americans turn to the internet before anything else. The easy accessibility of information, even greater with the rise of smartphones, makes the web an ideal quick stop for patients looking for answers. The successful rheumatologist sees the opportunity and leverages this medium to meet the patient there and engages them with the information they seek. This requires time and effort, but most of all, it requires digital marketing expertise. That’s where PromoteMed steps in to help.
