Providers skeptical of expanded Physician Compare site
Modern Physician

The CMS is touting its redesigned Physician Compare website as being a more useful and usable tool for the public to check out physicians and other healthcare providers. But provider organizations remain skeptical, saying they’ll believe it when they see it. Mandated by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, the Physician Compare website went live in 2010. Previously, it included such information as providers’ location, specialty, education, languages spoken and gender, which critics noted was already available elsewhere on the Internet.
