As healthcare moves toward a retail environment and the healthcare consumer takes an increasing role about choices in his or her care, the reputation of every healthcare provider becomes critical to its success and favorability within the community. With the emergence of social media, there are more direct channels for bringing both negative- and positive - feedback to the public eye. Monitoring public perception can help providers make adjustments to both minor and major issues that can impact their reputation. Establishing a proactive program that builds reputation capital, manage reputational risk, and creates a collaborative connection between internal stakeholders will prepare providers for dealing with crises in the future, as well as being able to recover if a crisis should occur.
