Step 8: Configure Sort Order

Why this step matters: It is important to configure the Search Algorithm to return results in a manner that heavily weighs relevance to the query, while also taking into consideration distance


Search Configuration

  • Rely on “Relevance” as the first sort order, followed by “Entity Distance” to ensure medical term searches provide the most accurate results. Read more on how to set entity sorting here!
  • Randomize the list of relevant professionals that return for a query by adding “Random” to the end of the sort order (following “relevance” and any other criteria). This will be helpful in cases where you have multiple doctors with identical specialties working at or near the same location.
