Tennessee Web site lets patients track doctors’ dealings
The Tennessean, March 17, 2008
By going to the Tennessee Department of Health's Web site, people can find out if the Tennessee Board of Medical Examiners has taken action against a doctor, why and what the outcome was. They also can find other information to help them choose a doctor, such as where they attended school, which hospitals they can practice in and whether they have a criminal record. The link got 6.8 million hits in 2007--making it one of the most popular in all of the state government.
