March 10th, 2017 by Melanie Matthews

Five percent of Google searches are health-related, equating to roughly five billion health-related searches every month, according to a new infographic by Scribewise.

For healthcare providers, this is a significant opportunity. Healthcare providers are generally mission-driven organizations committed to keeping their community healthy. Healthcare content marketing – creating and delivering high quality, medically-accurate health and wellness information into the marketplace – helps a healthcare provider fulfill its mission.

The infographic details the universe of healthcare information in 2017.

In performance year 2014, nine of CHS's 24 MSSP ACOs generated savings and received payments of almost $27 million.
