Yelp, ProPublica pair to give consumers more data on health care facilities
USA Today

Just as Yelp can give you advice on which restaurant to go to for the best burgers, now it can give you advice on which hospital to go to for the shortest emergency room waiting time.

Yelp announced Wednesday that it has joined forces with ProPublica, a non-profit investigative news organization, to incorporate additional statistics onto the Yelp pages of more than 25,000 medical treatment facilities pages.

This new feature comes as part of Yelp’s Consumer Protection Initiative, which is a series of steps the company is taking to clean the site from misleading, false, or biased reviews.
