The website can help consumers choose a doctor. It can also help comsumers see whether their experience with a doctor they have seen is similar to the experience other patients have had with that doctor. And it can help consumers talk with their doctor about ways in which they might like their doctor to interact with them differently.
Probably more important than the guidance and the website can give to consumers is how the information on the websiteand more detailed information CHECKBOOK/CSS provides in the Survey Results Report for Physicians Reportcan motivate and guide individual doctors and medical organizations to improve on the aspects of care the survey measures.
Given limited supply of doctors in family practice, internal medicine, pediatrics, and some other fields, and given limits on consumer choice, quality improvement rather than shifting of patients to higher rated doctors is the most promising path toward better health care results.
Elsewhere in this Guide you will find information on various resources that can help both physicians and patients to do better in the aspects of care measured in the survey.
