Innovative big data healthcare company brings factual data about physicians to search engines, insurance health plan portals, and popular consumer doctor review sites

SANTA MONICA, Calif., May 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- MD Insider announced today a new set of cloud-based services that will enable consumer websites, including search engines, insurance health plan portals, and doctor review sites, to include MD Insider's Physician Performance Transparency data in their search results. Now, in addition to consumer reviews of doctors, sites can include actual performance data to help consumers in making the best choice when picking a doctor.

On average, only 1 in 6 doctors have online reviews, making it difficult for consumers to choose a physician and even more difficult to know why one doctor might be a better choice than another. Online doctor reviews often focus on subjective areas, such as the difficulty in getting an appointment, appearance of doctor's offices, or the very negative experiences of a few patients. Too often there is little objective data to help patients make a decision about the real technical abilities of a doctor to diagnose and treat conditions.

The new Powered by MD Insider™ service solves this problem, providing quantified performance data about physicians, including the number of patients seen by condition, number of procedures the doctor has actually performed, average length of treatment, average number of tests ordered, and much more. Using this factual data, consumers can make more informed decisions when picking a doctor and can select more appropriate doctors for their needs, avoiding unnecessary visits to the wrong doctors and reducing their recovery time.

"Picking a doctor is a difficult challenge for most consumers," says David Norris, CEO of MD Insider. "Online doctor reviews provide one view of a physician's capabilities, but often lack the transparency of true facts that patients really want and need to know when deciding on a doctor. MD Insider brings real data to the consumer, removing the mystery when picking a doctor."

MD Insider's new Powered by MD Insider™ service provides a complete set of cloud-based programming interfaces that give access to billions of pieces of data about physicians. This new service is designed specifically to work with search engines, insurance health plan portals, and popular consumer doctor review sites, to enable them to provide Physician Performance Transparency directly to the consumer.
