Most physicians do not know that nearly 90% of prospective patients and referrals check their web reputations before making an appointment and one of every three web reviews is negative. Many physicians do not know that their medicaid and medicare fee reimbursements can be reduced up to 9% based in large part on patient satisfaction. Many insurers use patient satisfaction to determine how much to reimburse a physician or even if they will allow them into their network. SayAh's software for reputation management and patient satisfaction is the best and least expensive solution on the market.
