The survey info is a joke. Can we really rank quality of care based on whether people think their doctors spend a lot of time with them, or are very familiar with their history? Or whether they believe that system needs to be overhauled? If this is supposed to provide an indicator for quality of care, why not ask about quality of care, lol. The physician survey is similarly useless. Our quality of care is poor because fewer physicians in the US say that they use electronic records? Did they bother to ask why? Many doctors refuse to implement such systems because they believe it REDUCES the quality of care.
It would be wonderful if we could effectively study something like this by spending a few nights looking up data on the internet and posting a few excel graphs and your naive interpretation on a blog, but that's just not reality.
