Yelp Integrates CMS Data Into Hospital Review Ratings

“Yelp, a consumer review company has announced an innovative partnership with New York-based investigative journalism not-for-profit ProPublica to integrate health care statistics and consumer opinion survey data onto the Yelp business pages of more than 25,000 medical treatment facilities. 

The information is compiled by ProPublica from their own research and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) for 4,600 hospitals, 15,000 nursing homes, and 6,300 dialysis clinics in the US and will be updated quarterly. While the data is readily available on Medicare’s Hospital Compare website, Yelp executives state the site user interface (UI) is too cumbersome for the average consumer to navigate for insights.”
