Measures of quality in healthcare are complex and vary by user and intent. SDCMS developed a transparent process, wherein all physicians in the county were eligible for nomination. SDCMS members then selected doctors to whom they would refer their patients and family members (2,389 ballots sent, with a 33 percent return rate)."
