The next wave in the history and development of our healthcare system will include a far more knowledgeable and empowered patient population — patients who insist on a significant degree of transparency (medical errors), results reporting (quality), a sharper focus on cost, and (perhaps most important) patient satisfaction.
Many websites are now tabulating data on physicians for presentation to the public. They also ask the public to rank physicians based on a number of variables. These sites include Vitals, and Healthgrades. The downside of these sites is their obvious commercial slant and the fact that the physician or hospital does not have a means to reply to the testimonial. It will be interesting to see how this evolves.
