careNext Launches Doc360°
NASHVILLE, Tenn.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–careNext, a healthcare disruptor guiding consumers of healthcare (careSumers™) to the most appropriate healthcare provider whenever they need it, wherever they need it, is proud to introduce Doc360°™, a healthcare provider grading system with over 1.1 million care practitioners that will serve as consumers’ “single source of truth” to help them find providers who meet their individual needs.
“We believe the ‘visit’ is the most important moment in healthcare, but there’s been no common definition of success for patients and providers, making it impossible to get a true rating of satisfaction,” said careNext CEO Ron Morales. “Some providers have also had the mindset that if I make you well, I don’t need to make you happy. That’s all changing, and Doc360° was created through a consumer-focused lens to help patients and providers work together toward the common goal of a great visit.”
Implementing a novel approach to grading doctors, Doc360° develops provider scores by sourcing and aggregating physician ratings from multiple web sources. It then combines these ratings with data from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), weighting the data using a proprietary algorithm to create a provider “grade.” The result is the most accurate and comprehensive provider score in the marketplace. It is available at no cost to consumers or providers, and it eliminates score gaming by providers, which includes the ability to pay to influence ratings and the ability of competitors to negatively influence providers’ scores.
