Finding an appointment can improve access to care
One of the largest hurdles for people searching for healthcare can be finding an appointment that fits their schedule. In fact, the average wait time for a primary care appointment in the U.S. is often 20 or more days.
How it works
Available appointments will be visible to anyone viewing your practice or provider(s) on Google Search. When a user clicks the “book” button, they’ll be directed to your website to complete the booking process. No booking happens on Google Search.
Data feeds are shared with Google via secure partner portal with detailed information about practitioners, facilities, appointment types, and available times
Data is analyzed by internal Google systems for compliance with data feed and policy requirements
Available appointment types and dates from the feed are shown on Google Search
People looking for care are directed to and complete their booking on your website
