Health Grades joins Google and Cleveland Clinic PHR pilot
Health Grades, an independent healthcare ratings company, is partnering with Google to make independent information on doctors and hospitals, based on quality and cost, accessible via Google Health – a new product that is currently being pilot-tested with the Cleveland Clinic.

“For researching healthcare, more Americans turn to Google to start their search than any other source, so we are proud to be providing Google users with independent, objective quality ratings and cost information so that they can choose the best possible doctor and hospital,” said Kerry Hicks, HealthGrades’ CEO.

HealthGrades provides content on the quality of many of the nation’s hospitals and practicing physicians, and some of the content is already appearing in Google Maps today, including expanded profiles of healthcare providers, with more content to be added in the months to come.
