Online physician ratings are a key part of consumer-driven healthcare that is supposed to put individuals in charge of their own care. The idea is that educated consumers will choose the physicians and services that are least expensive and offer the highest quality as possible.
The new study found that there was no “significant association between consumer ratings and specialty-specific performance scores, primary care physician scores and administrator scores across the multiple platforms.”
