MERRIMAC, Mass., Oct. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Nurse Savvy Research Group is an exciting newcomer in the field of healthcare.
Nursesavvy.com is an online medical information service established to provide the general public with nurse based recommendations as to which doctors they would choose for a variety of medical problems resulting in quality healthcare for everyone. The data gathered for the website will be obtained through an online survey and written questionnaires from thousands of nurses across Massachusetts and New England.
Information obtained will be made available online to consumers. Each recommendation will include the physician's address, phone number, type of insurance accepted and office hours. The website will also offer periodic medical news and articles with a question and comments page for patients. With the efforts of the medical and nursing staff we hope to offer CEU programs for nurses in the near future.
Never before have nurses been polled on a scale this large in an effort to provide patients with a better doctor choice. Nursesavvy(SM) will be able to provide what doctors, medical boards of registration and insurance companies could not. Other physician, hospital or insurance companies offer traditional doctor surveys. We see them all the time. Their answers are based on titles, publications and sadly even on just friendships.
Nurses work closely with doctors and witness the results of surgeries, procedures and diagnostic pursuits by doctors. Nurses see successes, complications and failures of doctors as well as the grace and expertise of with which they respond to this. People trust nurses. In a 2006 Gallop Poll nurse ranked first for the eighth year in a row as the most trusted profession.
Let's face it. Nurses know whom they would go to, who they would send their family and friends to. Consumers need this information to make an informed doctor choice for themselves and their families. As professionals and patient advocates, nurses have the knowledge to make a difference.
At the recent Boston Advance Job Fair, Nursesavvy(SM) attracted a lot of attention and was greeted with enthusiasm by fellow nurses and exhibitors. Savvy Survey takers were quoted as saying, "It's about time nurses were asked for their opinion," and "When I needed a doctor, I asked a trusted nurse for her advice and she was right."
