GA4, or Google Analytics 4, is the latest version of Google’s web analytics platform. Effective July 1, 2023, the current version of GA (Universal Analytics) will sunset requiring everyone to use the latest and greatest from Google– except for the paid model of GA, 360. While GA4 has several benefits for healthcare marketers, there are also some potential concerns that have recently been raised. Keep in mind, most of those concerns would be similar with other well-known analytics programs, dramatically reducing the options (and data visibility) then available.
As many of you know, Google has been working to build out the infrastructure for a new version of Google Analytics (known as Google Analytics 4 or GA4). This will be a replacement of the current version of Google Analytics most of you use (called Universal Analytics).
