Find out more about our purpose, goals, and ownership.
CiteHealth is a health care ratings platform which enables consumers to evaluate their health care provider quality. Our primary mission is to allow consumers to make informed decisions about medical care they may be receiving. We accomplish this by providing free reports on health care providers and by providing a vehicle for patients to convey their experiences and questions to one another. The information contained on each health provider comes from numerous government and commercial sources, direct contact, and from our users. We have free reports on hospitals, nursing homes, dialysis centers, home care agencies, and rehabilitation centers.
The "CiteHealth" Difference
CiteHealth is different than our competitors, as we:
- Provide all information for free.
- Display every relevant piece of data.
- Compare attributes of each provider against other providers and locations.
- Organize information so it's easy to use, access, and reference (i.e. no multiple pages, no logins, and no hurdles to get to reports).
- Display information in a number of different formats (e.g. graphs, sentences, lists).
- Create indexes that intelligently combine key attributes.
- Provide rich media content such as maps, pictures, audio, and more.
- Deliver numerous tools to our users, all at no cost.
- Allow mechanisms for community and sharing.
- Let you give your feedback and take part in shaping the information.
- We "partner with and help" and don't "sell to" the providers we cover.
We feel strongly about social responsiblity. We give 3% of our profits to charities that our users are passionate about. At the end of each fiscal year, we tally up users' charity selections and divide our ear-marked funds for donation based on these proportions. Our current approved charities are:
- American Cancer Society
- American Heart Association
- American Kidney Fund
- American Red Cross
- Arthritis Foundation
- Big Brothers of America
- Easter Seals
- Habitat for Humanity
- Humane Society
- March of Dimes
- Meals on Wheels
- United Way
Our primary goal is to provide consumers with free access to quality health care provider information. The idea is simple but when examining the current landscape of websites in this arena you will find:
- Sites giving a small amount of information and then wanting to charge for the rest
- Sites giving basic information away but putting up hurdles to getting it. These sites also do not provide insight but rather just the raw data.
- Sites built entirely for advertising revenue that give very little information
Observing the landscape as such, we felt the need to fill the "void" and correct as many of these issues as we could. We feel strongly that giving everyone access to this information benefits the greatest number of people as possible, including us as a company.
CiteHealth is owned and operated by Open Data Systems, Inc.
