Patients, providers prefer these 27 health systems 2 to 1 over competitors

WebMD and Medscape announced their 2022 Choice Awards on Nov. 10, recognizing hospitals that are preferred by patients and providers across five speciality areas: oncology, cardiology, orthopedics, neurology and gastroenterology. 

To gather data, WebMD randomly intercepted relevant conditions and audiences on its website and provided 1,000 to 1,500 viewers per specialty area with a live poll; responses were geo-located to gather market information. Physicians were targeted via an email from Medscape, and 250 to 300 survey replies were gathered per specialty.
