myHealthAdvisor empowers the average individual to have access to medical information that gives them the highest probability of success as a result of myHealthAdvisor's proprietary evaluation and ranking system.
While this information is publicly available, it is not readily accessible or analyzed in a way for non-medical personnel to easily interpret. It is often found in a variety of places, each with different ways of measuring and quantifying a successful outcome. Additionally, although there are numerous healthcare rating services and apps in the market, their ratings are not based upon quantitative quality measures for a specific procedure.
myHealthAdvisor ranks hospitals and physicians on their performance for a specific medical procedure using a quantitative and value-based algorithm. myHealthAdvisor gathers and sorts the data available and reports it to the consumer in a simple understandable format, providing patients with the necessary information to make knowledgeable choices.
