Transparency and better public information on cost and quality are essential for three reasons:
1. To help providers improve by benchmarking their performance against others;
2. To encourage private insurers and public programs to reward quality and efficiency; and
3. To help patients make informed choices about their care.
Q-Transparency is based on both quantitative and qualitative patient ratings in Q-Review, our real-time outpatient feedback tool. With the help of our simple and secure API (Application Programming Interface), extensive and authenticated feedback data generated by Q-Review is transmitted via Q-Transparency to enable the quick and easy publication of valuable patient feedback directly on your website. They appear as an electronic directory with different lists for each provider and each department.
Each registered provider and department has its own profile page which patients can access by clicking on their name. Patients can find out more about the providers / departments there. Profiles can include basic contact information such as their location, phone number and email address, as well as detailed biographical information describing who they are, what they do, and how they practice medicine.
If patients like what they see, they can even make an appointment directly on their profile. With this dynamic and engaging patient feedback section,transparency in healthcare is taken to a whole new level.
In fact, no matter what, potential patients are likely to learn your practice. If you do not share a review on your website, it may be searched for on a third party website that contains inaccurate or incomplete information. Share this feedback directly on your website and you can earn their trust - and maybe even their business.
