In Nayya's provider search, how are doctors ranked and where does this rating data come from?

Nayya leverages its connections to both public and private sources to bring you the most up-to-date information about doctors in your area. Doctors on the Get Care + Wellness page are ranked based on cost and quality of care scores which account for the below:

  • Outcomes Quality → A provider's overall outcomes quality score compares factors such as readmission rates, patient mortality rates, avoidable ER visit rates, etc. to those of other clinicians treating similar types of patients.

  • Cost efficiency → A provider's overall cost efficiency score measures how expensive they are compared to providers treating similar types of patients, taking into account both average prices charged, and the number of services prescribed. 

Both scores range from 1 to 5, with a score of 5 being the best (higher quality or more cost-efficient) and a score of 1 being the worst (lower quality or less cost-efficient). The scores are developed off of Medicare fee-for-service (also called Traditional Medicare) data.

Additionally, we display Patient Satisfaction Ratings which are a composite of ratings on various criteria (bedside manner, waiting time etc.) that patients have given to doctors.
