Yelp, the online service which provides customer reviews of local businesses, has teamed with the ProPublica news organization to incorporate healthcare statistics and consumer opinion survey data onto Yelp’s business pages for more than 25,000 medical treatment facilities.

The information will be compiled by ProPublica from their own research and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services for 4,600 hospitals, 15,000 nursing homes, and 6,300 dialysis clinics. Although CMS already provides much of the data about hospitals on its Hospital Compare website, the information can be difficult for consumers to navigate and understand, according to Yelp.
