Trusted Reviews. Trusted Care. CareDash.
When it comes to the health of you and your loved ones, there’s no leaving things to chance.
Some people are fortunate enough to have reliable healthcare providers in their lives that they and their families have seen for years, without worry or second thought. But the majority of us take more of a blindfolded approach to finding care – relying on an insurance company’s or friend of a friend’s recommendation and putting our well-being in the hands of someone we don’t know.
Consumer reviews from sites like Yelp and Google can be helpful, but these services are geared more towards other businesses. If a restaurant review steers you wrong, you might leave with a stomach ache; but when it comes to finding the right doctor, the stakes are significantly raised.
A handful of review sites do exist that are dedicated specifically to healthcare – but they’re notoriously plagued by a lack of transparency and review reputability. For the sake of the health of the American consumer, it’s time for a better solution.
Introducing CareDash: an up-and-coming healthcare provider review site that aims to be the most reliable and informative of its kind. In just a few clicks and keystrokes, users from around the US can find, compare, and learn about local providers from a source dedicated specifically to the field – and without worrying about review reputability.
A commitment to transparency, accessibility, and inclusivity is what sets CareDash apart. To this end, the site displays payments made by healthcare companies to providers, and never accepts financial compensation to remove negative reviews.
Patients are encouraged to write honest and detailed reviews themselves, after signing up to ensure validity. From there, every review goes through an approval process to ensure integrity.
On the providers’ end, doctors and managers can claim their free profile and engage potential new business by keeping their information up to date. This goes for a wide array of professionals – including Primary Care, Dentists, Therapists, OB/GYNs, Pediatricians, and more – giving insight into the large target audience that can benefit from CareDash.
Providers and their reviews are easily searchable by specialty, hospital, and/or zip code. Here’s a glimpse at just a few more of CareDash’s many features and benefits:
- Healthcare providers can claim their profiles for free
- Provider’s affiliated practice locations and contact info are also provided
- The services a doctor provides are readily listed
- A “Learn About Your Health” section of the site that provides healthcare education
- Mental health professionals are also listed
CareDash was created in 2016 by Founder and CEO Ted Chan, who decided to act after realizing that providers could remove negative reviews in exchange for compensation. The site now boasts over 1,000,000 visits per month and 18,300+ Facebook followers – standing as one of the fastest-growing review sites in the healthcare space.
Last month, the company also introduced an API called CAPI to programmatically update large volumes of doctor and practice information. Platform improvements like these will continue to be a focus going forward, as Chan looks to make CareDash the most reliable and informative site of its kind.
