Why was Whitecoat launched?

We have developed Whitecoat to allow all Australians to search and compare health care providers to allow them to make better and more informed choices when selecting health care providers. Whitecoat is particularly useful for people who have moved to a new area or need treatment for a specialist service for the first time, as well as those wanting a recommendation from patients who have already visited a health care provider.

How legitimate are customer reviews?

Whitecoat user have access to an ever-growing 250,000 moderated reviews from real users so you can be certain you pick the right provider every time.

When completing a Whitecoat survey, users are also given the opportunity to provide a review on their service experience. Reviews are sourced from Whitecoat users as well as members of affiliated private health insurers who have been provided with a billable service from the provider. Before reviews are published to Whitecoat, they must first pass through extensive checking procedures and moderation guidelines. This process ensures reviews are relevant to the service that was provided, are not offensive or contain profanity, and do not assess the provider's clinical expertise or quality of clinical care. Reviews that do not pass through this process are not published.

DHV will strictly manage the process of obtaining, reviewing and publishing data and reviews about each provider.
