Why:
From online user reviews to investigative reporters and federal and state governments, consumers have access to a dazzling array of provider quality data and ratings. Add in tools that supply cost information and layer on high-deductible health plans, and it's a lot for consumers and patients to absorb. But when paired with carefully crafted editorial content and consumer stories, provider quality ratings really can help consumers understand their options, drive conversations between patients and providers, and help hold providers accountable for their performance.
