Lifespan Find a Doctor Search

We built world’s fastest, most user-friendly doctor finder for Lifespan.

Lifespan and Consensus Interactive came together to achieve one goal – help people find the right doctor, faster.

With its expanding network of over 1,800 doctors, spread across 6 hospitals and over 150 practice locations, Lifespan needed to create a powerful, but simplified doctor search experience. Powered by Algolia, the Lifespan Find a Doctor Search uses filters and facets, synonyms and geo-search, to help users find the right doctor by name, location, specialty, or area of expertise – one keystroke at a time.

The result is an incredibly efficient, user-centered experience, with results that change in real-time as the user enters more information.

In addition to being the fastest doctor search, our tiled design allowed us to display all the critical information about each doctor right on the search result pages, including multiple locations, directions, specialties and most important: a phone number. And we incorporated the ability for users to watch videos about each doctor without leaving the results page, employing a card-flip functionality.

We invite you to test the experience for yourself, here.
