Step 4: Add Location Search

Why this step matters: Consumers often search for providers in their area and are willing to go a small distance away to find care. It is important to configure Search in a way that returns providers not only in the exact geographical area, but also returns results nearby.


Search Configuration

  • Enable builtin.location as NLP Filter to handle Location type searches.
  • If your health system serves a specific geographic area, consider implementing a Bounding Box that includes the system’s region and surrounding areas. This will ensure that the Search Algorithm is most accurate for the geographical area your Healthcare System serves.

Common Mistakes

  • Configuring additional Address (e.g.,, address.line1) or Geomodifier fields as NLP Filter. If you would like to leverage those fields consider using Phrase Match and/or Text Search.
