HealthWorldWeb provides users the chance to rate local doctors based upon the care they provide. The rating system is broken up into more than just a few simple questions. Doctors are reviewed and rated upon knowledge, demeanor, background, location, and patient experience--as well as overall user-submitted ratings and comments.

HealthWorldWeb was awarded a World Wide Health Award for their contribution to Personal Health Education. Honored in the same category were WebMD and the National Institutes of Health--two online healthcare powerhouses. Someone is certainly noticing the relevance of the rating system in the health care field.

Patients now have the opportunity to look into the future of their care through the eyes of other patients who are willing to share that insight, and HealthWorldWeb provides the medium for that interaction. Cutting-edge technology meets the needs of the healthcare consumer at the social networking stage. Stats for Social Networking for Healthcare Trending: Older & Mild
