New Web Site Provides Ratings for Doctors in California

A new Web site provides ratings on over 10,000 doctors in California. “The California Healthcare Performance Information System (CHPI) has launched a new website… a free resource for consumers to search ratings on more than 10,000 physicians across California. Each physician received a rating of one to four stars on measures in their area of specialty…. Data on more than 10 million patients was analyzed to create the ratings, which measure how well physicians and practice sites provided recommended medical tests and procedures for patients with certain healthcare conditions.”
