Map Highlights "Doctors Behaving Badly" Nationwide

RepoortingOnHealth.com features a project focused on a map of disciplinary actions taken against doctors nationwide. For each state, the map features a news story of a misbehaving doctor and how the state's medical board took disciplinary action.

The creators of the map are also studying each state medical board's website to determine whether or not the public is given enough information to make a quality judgment on a provider. The study is not complete, but they currently rate California's site as one of the best since it provides visitors with detailed provider histories. Illinois is ranked as one of the worst sites when it comes to providing visitors with information.
