Finding the Right Doctor
QualityCare Connect was created to address a major healthcare issue – finding a good doctor. With the lack of transparency around healthcare providers, many people struggle to find the right physician match.
We can fix that.
The current doctor referral process is broken.
Healthcare hasn’t kept pace when it comes to providing quality transparency. The average person can’t understand what qualifies a doctor to treat patients at the condition and subspecialty level.
We’ve developed a data science approach that measures dozens of quality factors for U.S. physicians. This allows us to provide you with the most accurate physician matching service available today.

How QualityCare Connect works
Whether needing an initial diagnosis or seeking a second opinion, we help our members on every step of their healthcare journey.
It’s easy to initiate a physician match
Members can start a case online or simply call us.
We focus on more than just clinical needs
We utilize non-clinical preferences to ensure a pleasant experience with their physician match.
The choice is theirs
Members receive profiles of matched doctors, so they can make an informed choice of who to see. They are under no obligation to choose any of the doctors we recommend.
IN 1-2 BUSINESS DAYS, THEY RECEIVE
Their choices are sent as a list of physician profiles, personalized to them. We include contact and location information for each recommended physician, as well as information on their medical background and experience, so they can make an informed choice about who to see.
We have no financial or legal relationship with any physician we recommend.

ON ANOTHER NOTE
We make physicians happy too!
We believe all members should be seeing a physician that has an identified Area of Clinical Expertise (ACE) that matches their condition. To the physicians we recommend, our members are their ideal patients.
Many referrals from other doctors turn out well – but even doctors do not have the resources to know if specialists in their referral network are qualified, take specific insurance or have appointment availability. We close this gap by providing objective recommendations, offering patients, and physicians alike, an overall better experience. That’s what makes us experts at matching patients with physicians.
And, with ever-broadening medical science, specialists are, well… specializing! Most develop subspecialties, focusing on specific conditions and would prefer to see more patients that fall into their Area of Clinical Expertise.
