What does Consumer Reports say about my car ... and my doctor?

Are you among the millions of Americans who read the Consumer Reports before you shop for a new camera, computer or car? What about before you pick your doctor or hospital?

The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s effort, Aligning Forces for Quality, has partnered with Consumer Reports to publish information on the quality of care being delivered in targeted communities. The idea is to make reliable information on the quality of health insurance plans, physician performance and hospitals available to consumers in an easily understandable and digestible format.

Massachusetts will be the first to publish this information in June, followed by Minnesota and Wisconsin.
