WebMD Patient Choice Awards identify the best-in-class health systems from a consumer perspective across various specialties. The top 30% of patient preferences receive the WebMD Patient Choice Award. Patient opinions are measured using a market-by-market surveying process conducted through the WebMD owned and
operated digital properties. The surveys are run on an annual basis, and awards are announced as results are finalized in target markets.
“Now more than ever, WebMD is striving to improve the health and wellness of its 75 million monthly users,” says John Whyte, M.D., Chief Medical Officer, WebMD. “These awards empower and champion the voice of the patient, giving health systems a greater understanding of how their care is perceived.”
