PokitDok, a Silicon Valley-based health and wellness startup, is excited to introduce their new consumer-based practitioner rating and review system.
Believing that there are a variety of factors that go into selecting a physician or alternative care professional, PokitDok has created an evaluation system that gives both an overall satisfaction metric as well as measuring the individual factors that contribute to a patient’s larger contentment.
PokitDok consumers will now have the ability to rank a practitioner across three different criteria (informative, compassionate, and accommodating) with one to five stars; one being poor, and five being excellent. The mean of these scores is used to create an overall provider quality rating which is then averaged against other consumer ratings. Consumers can show additional support with a “love” endorsement for practitioners they believe go above and beyond. Also part of the evaluation is free-form reviews. These reviews give consumers the opportunity to provide brief but detailed feedback on their patient experience.
“PokitDok is changing the way in which consumers rate their practitioner interactions. . Far more than a basic rating, PokitDok has created a deeper model of trust where consumers evaluate how informative, compassionate, and accommodating a practitioner is and can add a little extra “love” to fully rate and compare options specifically tailored to their needs.” – Ted Tanner, PokitDok CTO
Combining both a quantitative rating system with a qualitative review opportunity provides PokitDok users with a full picture of what they can expect and select a provider based on the criteria that is most important to them in a health and wellness professional.
