The Ratings section of Consumer Health Ratings provides links to professionally prepared reports showing specific performance for hospitals, surgery centers, nursing homes, health insurance plans, clinics, home health, hospice, kidney dialysis, fertility clinics, other healthcare providers, and in some cases specific physicians – by name. The physician and surgeon category provides links to get free reports on individual doctors. Reports have been prepared by government, accrediting bodies, employer-based purchasing coalitions, non-profit professional societies, hospital associations, insurance-related groups, for-profit corporations or other coalitions. They use different methods and report formats, and are not always easy to read. But we have tried to find the best of what is out there, and get you to it with as few steps as possible, so you can make informed decisions about your health care.
