HealthcareReviews.com to expand patient ratings & reviews service after successful startup in USA.
June 13, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Health NewsLaunched in the fall of 2006 in the U.S.A. and Canada, a successful patient response has now prompted an expansion to the European Union. "Patient feedback has exceeded our initial expectations, we are definitely providing a pubic service that is needed", said Charles Landrigan, owner of HealthcareReviews.com .
With little to no independent healthcare system patient feedback, some workers and organizations are able to continue providing poor patient services. As these organizations review themselves, an inherent conflict of interest occurs. This website now provides those needed independent reviews.
As with any service profession, the lack of patient feedback will result in poor services. Compounding this is a general shortage of workers, most employers cannot afford to lay anyone off or even discipline them, as they might go work elsewhere. This website provides anonymous patient feedback that these professionals need and will not otherwise receive from their employers.
Charles Landrigan, owner of HealthcareReviews.com says, "Determined and persistent patients might be able to find a governing body to voice their healthcare system concerns, but realistically these organizations were meant to discourage patient feedback through overly bureaucratic processes and ineffective follow ups. Our website has provided a service that is easy to use and is free from intimidation or backlash."
Most patients are pleased with the healthcare they receive, as the doctors, nurses, technologist and staff are professional, hard working and genuinely concerned. This website also encourages ratings and reviews of these healthcare workers so others can enjoy their services and reward their exceptional work.
