I have played with lots of these sites as they come out. The all want to help you find a physician, compare physicians, rank physicians, etc.
I received an e-mail about this new site – Vitals.com. I was skeptical at first that it would just be another me-too site. But, I was impressed at first glance. Here is a Fox Business article about them.
- It is easy to use.
- The graphics are intuitive.
- The information was easy to assimilate. (name, age, gender, specialty, addresses, certified, hospital affiliations, education, residence, fellowship, patient rankings, and disciplinary action)
- And, my favorite part is that you can compare physicians.
Here are a couple of screen shots. The first two show just comparing MDs. The third is the MD find and compare feature. The fourth is the rankings that they use plus an option to include free text comments.
(BTW – What I find interesting also is that this is the second time a PR agency has contacted me on behalf of their client. One was for a F100 company that I talked about and this is obviously a start-up, but managing the online brand has obviously become a full-time job.)
