Many patient resources compare the quality of medical providers. Following are links to some of these resources. We believe that you will find the websites helpful, but first, you should understand their limitations.
Limitations of Comparison Websites
You may notice that the statistics on each website are different. This is typically because they are reporting on different time periods or utilizing different sets of data, such as only Medicare patients versus all patients regardless of their insurance coverage. Although this may be confusing, it does not impact the accuracy of results.
Each site should list details about where their data comes from and how current the data is. Deaconess is committed to providing quality patient care and we feel transparency with our data is an important piece of this.
