VERY IMPORTANT: QUALITY OF PROFESSIONAL VISIBILITY ONLINE

To be successful, it is important for spinecare professionals to earn the respect and referrals from other healthcare providers and to have a high level of favorable visibility online. An online listing helps the provider promote their practice and attract patients. The listing also serves to inform the public about a professional's affiliations, as well as, their experience and role in spinecare. Too often healthcare professionals take advantage of free online directory listings offered by organizations without considering the short and long-term consequences associated with the quality and depth of their exposure.

An online directory listing allows the user to easily compare and contrast the spinecare professional's status with other providers in their geographic area. Poor or limited professional representation online can have an adverse impact on the referral or search process. For this reason, it is imperative that all spinecare professionals consider the type of exposure required to highlight their experience and to distinguish themselves from others. Research has demonstrated that the public places a high level of value on a professional's affiliations and associations with other disciplines and local hospitals/healthcare systems. In addition, the public recognizes a lack of substance, overused website templates and canned website content, all of which can lead to a professional's loss of credibility online.

The American Academy of Spine Physicians (AASP) offers numerous member benefits, which can be used to enhance the quality of online professional visibility. Membership status with the AASP offers a spinecare professional the opportunity to highlight their acceptance within "mainstream spinecare", their dedication to multidisciplinary collaboration and their commitment to excellence in spinecare. The AASP offers its members a website plug-in with which adds informational depth and credibility to existing or new websites. AASP members also have the opportunity to achieve advanced credentialing such as Diplomate or Fellow status. Fellow status has long been recognized by healthcare providers and the public as the highest level of achievement within a specialty.

In summary, it is now more important than it is ever been to commit to advancing your role in spinecare and sharing this commitment with online exposure.
