Study suggests Yelp can help people find quality healthcare

Yelp ratings can provide a useful guide for people shopping for quality healthcare, a new report concludes.

The Manhattan Institute found that Yelp ratings for New York state hospitals correlated with established quality metrics — those with higher ratings had lower preventable readmission rates.

As the number of Yelp ratings grows, they will become even more helpful in steering people toward high-quality hospitals, the authors say.
