Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Penn Medicine ProviderMatch (PMPM) program?

Penn Medicine ProviderMatch is a new provider profile management application (Find a Doctor) that standardizes information to help match patients to the right providers. ProviderMatch lets physicians and advanced practice providers update their own profiles shown on the Penn Medicine website.

How are these lists of clinical terms being put together?

ProviderMatch comes with a library of more than 10,000 terms, curated by a physician board and led by a chief medical officer. All terms under “clinical expertise” currently in the LancasterGeneralHealth.org Find a Doctor will be removed and replaced with terms from the library. The library includes lay and clinical terms for conditions, symptoms, treatments and procedures, as well as synonyms.

How does this new program benefit providers?

Providers can update their own profiles, ensuring accuracy and up-to-date information that reflects their clinical scope of practice. The profiles will perform better in organic search results on Google and other search engines which helps patients find providers.

How much time will it take me to update my profile?

It only takes 5-10 minutes to review and make updates in ProviderMatch.

Does every provider profile require an approval before going live? Who will approve profiles?

Yes. This ensures there is a consistent and governed approach to managing all provider profiles. Each provider will have an assigned clinical and marketing approver.

What is the marketing profile update form used for? Where is it found?

Use the marketing profile request form to request profile updates to practice locations, profile images, education and certifications. Find the form at PennMedicine.org/Profile-Update.
