Researchers and Services
DrScore.com is dedicated to advancing patients’ health care experiences and quality through research use of its survey, databases and scientific expertise. Access to our nationally focused database covering multiple specialty and provider types and diverse patient base allows researchers to examine predictors of overall patient satisfaction and its components.

For example detailed analyses can be provided by practice type or patient characteristics, or to provide benchmark data to researchers granted permission to use the DrScore survey. (In all cases, personal and identifying information regarding individual doctors, patients, or practices is protected and excluded from research datasets and reports.)

What we offer

Survey Use. Researchers may apply in writing for permission to use the DrScore patient satisfaction survey for scientific purposes. Academic and not-for-profit institutions may use the survey, upon approval of DrScore, free of charge for the time specified in the Survey User’s Agreement. Applications should be sent to: research@drscore.com for prompt reply.

Data Analyses. Researchers may request detailed statistical analyses of DrScore data on a fee-for-service basis. Services include assistance by experts at DrScore in developing or reviewing the analysis plan, performing statistical analyses, and preparing results tables and reports. At this time, DrScore does not provide public use copies of its patient satisfaction database. Requests for analysis should accompany a brief scientific plan discussing research objectives, time frame, sample size requirements, human subjects protection, inclusion/exclusion criteria, and source of funding. All requests are confidential and should be sent to research@drscore.com for follow-up contact by our staff.

Benchmarking. Researchers using the DrScore survey or analytic services may also request benchmarking services based on DrScore survey population or practice characteristics. This information (mean score, standard deviation) will assist in comparing your results to other practices or populations. Research comparisons of practices with DrScore surveyed practices may also request percentile ranks, or relative ranking.
