Meet Your Match on Valentine’s Day
February 14, 2019
After all -- it’s one of the most important relationships you’ll have
Enjoy the flowers, the candy and the romantic dinner.
Then head straight to your mobile device or computer. Wait…what?
Starting this Valentine’s Day, you’ll be able to meet your perfect match – not the one who splurged on dinner – but the health care provider you’ve been looking for all your life.
CHI Health is offering MyProviderMatch.com to help you find that special someone. It’s quick and easy and free:
- You tell us about yourself and your health care needs by answering 14 questions. MyProviderMatch’s matching algorithm will then match you with providers who best fit who you are as well as taking into account specialty, gender, experience, location, language, interests and more. The scientific algorithm – AKA Cupid -- is based on 30 years of research.
- You view your matches – then you can explore their profiles and get to know their personalities. Videos are included for most.
- You choose your provider. You can save your MyProviderMatch results and request appointments at your convenience.
“People know more about how to buy a car than they do about selecting a doctor,” the president of a nonprofit organization that promotes healthy behavior said recently.
That doesn’t have to be true anymore. As the only tool of its kind in the region, MyProviderMatch makes it easier than ever to find a provider who’s compatible with your individual health care needs.
Why is the right provider a big deal? A long term relationship with the right doctor can prevent or keep chronic conditions under control. For example, a study in the journal Pediatrics found that children who did not have continuity of care were nearly 60 percent more likely to visit the emergency department than those with good continuity of care.
This Valentine’s, enjoy the romance.
Then go find Dr. Right.
