HCAHPS is the barometer for understanding a patient’s hospital experience. But can you predict the
outcome of your patient satisfaction surveys by reading online reviews from past and present patients?
And more importantly, does improving your hospital’s online reputation improve HCAHPS scores?
Reputation.com’s Data Science team, led by Brad Null, Ph.D, analyzed two years of HCAHPS hospital
survey data from The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, across more than 4,800 hospitals.
The team reviewed the data alongside online reviews, ratings and rankings for those same hospitals, and
made some significant discoveries:
• Online reviews provide early warning of issues that may impact patient experience, giving hospitals the
opportunity to identify and address those issues before patient satisfaction scores suffer.
• By continually monitoring, managing, requesting and responding to patient reviews, a healthcare
organization can address negative feedback that impacts HCAHPS resu
Creating competitive advantage starts with a
sound digital strategy.
In a 2017 survey of healthcare consumers across the U.S. from a representative range of demographic groups, we found that 88% of consumers begin their search
for healthcare providers online. Consumers rely on search engines and review sites
to steer their decisions about where to go for care.
What consumers read about you online heavily influences their decision-making.
Your reputation is defined at every touchpoint a potential patient has with your
doctors and organization on the web — from the doctor or location listing, to patient
rating and reviews, to finding the right doctor and reading profiles on your website.
Done well, online reputation management (ORM) enables your providers to
generate a high volume of representative reviews from the “silent majority,”
while providing valuable insights to improve patient experience, make operational
improvements and drive new patient appointments.
Brand perception begins online, with the local online reputation of doctors, clinics and hospitals.
In late 2017, Reputation.com set out to understand how consumers use the internet to look
for healthcare services online, particularly when interacting with healthcare-related ratings
and reviews. We surveyed healthcare consumers across the U.S. in a representative range of
demographic groups for answers to some key questions:
• What are consumers and patients really looking for in online reviews?
• What ratings and review factors are most important when choosing a doctor?
• What sites are most used and trusted for this information?
Findings confirmed that online reviews are an essential part of the healthcare consumer’s
decision-making. In this report, we’ll look at the key findings in detail.

While advanced persistent threats and malware still plague some victims, it is ransomware that is still gaining real traction in today’s cybersecurity landscape. The EternalBlue flaw that took over the news in May 2017 rose to popularity as a result of its inclusion in the data leaked by The Shadow Brokers. Utilized in multiple attacks alongside the also-released DoublePulsar exploit, including the installation of cryptocurrency miner Adylkuzz, the exploits are just the tip of the cyberwarfare tools The Shadow Brokers are claiming to have in their arsenal. The latest EternalBlue and DoublePulsar based attacks, delivering the WannaCry Ransomware, have so far been hugely damaging to healthcare organizations while also impacting over 200,000 endpoints in 150 countries. WannaCry-WanaCryptor 2.0 was coupled with the EternalBlue exploit, allowing it to automatically propagate itself to vulnerable machines across the Internet. While not technically advanced, the use of EternalBlue and DoubleP

ealthcare workers understand the complexity of fighting infections better than most. As medications are developed, germs evolve and become resistant to those medications. Over time, germs become incredibly complex and difficult to treat as they continue to evolve and adapt.
Unfortunately, computer viruses seem to be following a similar pattern—and the healthcare industry is struggling to catch up.
Healthcare accounts for 21% of all cybersecurity breaches, making it the most affected business sector in the U.S. economy.

To better understand how companies are finding the unique, hybrid cloud architectures that best meet their needs, we interviewed executives at companies that had reduced or changed their use of managed or cloud IaaS or that chose to avoid the public cloud in the first place.
These companies include retail, social media, healthcare, financial services, and public sector companies. Some of these companies were born in the cloud while others transitioned from traditional IT infrastructures. Company sizes ranged from 300 employees to more than 300,000.
