“Consumer Report” of Doctors

There are several websites let consumers search and rate physicians. Patient and their families can use those information to make informed medical and health care decision.

UCompareHealthcare, HealthGrades, Vitals, Vimo, Dr. Score

Those sites get the information from different sources regarding doctors profiles (training, specialty,etc.). Some of the sites are also provide different tools/metrics for rating physicians. As those rating have be used for patients/family, simulation based assessment might also be used for physician competency assessment in the future.
