Yelp’s Hospital Reviews Are Getting Real Health Care Data
Wired News

Yelp is probably best known for its restaurant reviews, but founders Jeremy Stoppelman and Russel Simmons were more concerned with how to find a good doctor online than where to grab a decent meal when they started the company in 2004. Today Yelp announced a new feature that gets back to those roots. All listings for hospitals, nursing homes and dialysis clinics now include data such as average emergency room times, fines a facility may have paid, and serious deficiencies that have been reported.
