Choosing the right health provider is a critical decision for healthcare consumers. Numerous studies have shown that patients have better outcomes with some providers than others.

Access to Provider Information

For over 40 years, Checkbook has sought to give consumers information to help choose the right provider. Examples of causes we’ve worked on include:


  • Using billions of claims to evaluate safety outcome
  • Getting the inside scoop by asking doctors to recommend other doctor
  • Collaborating with insurers to to identify many members who all saw the same doctor
  • Using rigorous survey research methods to evaluate which doctors scored better

We still think there is a lot more information that consumers need to evaluate providers, such as patient- reported outcomes for medical treatments, individual safety outcomes for maternity care, and much more. At the same time, when consumers go to their favorite search engine to learn about a doctor, they see a flood of disorganized data with poor accuracy.
