WINSTON-SALEM, N.C., Sept. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- DrScore.com, a nationwide service based in Winston-Salem that lets patients give their physicians feedback online, announced today that it has formed a strategic partnership with Vivacare. Vivacare provides medical practices with free, practice-branded Web sites featuring innovative patient education services.
Within the terms of the partnership between DrScore and Vivacare, the companies will co-market their services to selected specialties. In addition, each company will provide hyperlinks on the companies' Web sites, directing visitors to one another's sites.
"We share with Vivacare an emphasis on great patient care," said Dr. Steven R. Feldman, founder and president of DrScore.com. "We're pleased to partner with a company that takes a different, though equally valuable, approach to patient-focused medicine."
"While Vivacare provides patient education services, DrScore improves care by efficiently collecting feedback from patients. Both aim to enhance the physician-patient relationship. We're excited to have the opportunity to work with a company that is clearly invested in improving healthcare," said Mark Becker, M.D., president at Vivacare.
Founded by Dr. Steven R. Feldman, M.D., Ph.D., DrScore.com is dedicated to improving patient satisfaction and the quality of medical care. By allowing patients to rate their doctors, those seeking medical care are given real- world insight into potential healthcare providers, and medical practices are given a low-cost alternative for measuring and improving patient satisfaction.

Vivacare helps physicians to educate their patients. Physicians receive a free, Web-based patient education library with an extensive collection of up- to-date patient-oriented references. Each practice personalizes the content to match their unique approach to care. At the end of the office visit, physicians and their office staff can easily direct patients to their own practice-branded library to learn more about their diagnosis and treatment plan.
