“Today, just like in other areas of their lives, patients and consumers expect solutions that offer choice and convenience in healthcare,” said Carrie Liken, head of industry for healthcare at Yext. “When forward-thinking, patient-centric organizations like Main Line Health continually improve their digital experiences — especially search and scheduling — they are staying ahead of patient needs and providing great user experiences before patients even set foot in a provider’s office.”
“We are pleased to help power Main Line Health’s new patient engagement platform through our robust solutions and knowledge of best practices for online scheduling,” said Matt Dickson, senior vice president, Stericycle Communication Solutions. “Our combined technology simplifies provider discovery at a time when engaging patients with their healthcare needs is paramount.”
Main Line Health’s digital transformation marks the latest collaboration between Yext and Stericycle, a Yext Strategic Alliance Partner, as part of the official integration of Stericycle’s Intelligent Scheduling Solution into the Yext platform.

Yext (NYSE: YEXT) the AI Search Company is on a mission to transform the enterprise with AI search.
With the explosion of information and data online, search has never been more important. However, while the world of consumer search has innovated over time, enterprise search has not. In fact, the majority of enterprise search is powered by outdated keyword search technology that only scans for keywords and delivers a list of hyperlinks rather than actually answering questions.
Yext, the AI Search Company, offers a modern, AI-powered Answers Platform that understands natural language so that when people ask questions about a business online, they get direct answers – not links.
