Once you've learned how to find primary care physicians (PCPs) with Amino, you might wonder which search options are best for you.
Here's an overview of how primary care search works on Amino.
Amino shows you Smart Matches first
Smart Match helps you easily identify in-network, highly experienced, cost-effective doctors for your needs.
Primary care physicians with the Smart Match label satisfy all of the following criteria:
- Are in-network for your plan
- Are highly experienced treating preventive care patients (Top 5%, Top 15%, or Top 25% nationwide)
- Provide cost-effective primary care ($ – $$ rating)
(Wondering how we calculate the doctor's experience and cost-effectiveness? Learn more about how we measure a doctor's experience using claims data and how we determine a doctor's primary care cost rating.)
You can also sort by Experience Match
Using the sort menu on your search results, you can switch to sorting your results by best Experience Match. When you sort by Experience Match, the doctors with the most experience treating preventive care patients appear first.
Here's how we measure each doctor's preventive care experience.
By analyzing our database about billions of doctor-patient interactions, we identify the billing codes for common preventive care services.
For each practicing primary care physician, we then count the number of unique patients they saw for preventive care services. This allows us to compute a percentile experience rank for each doctor that shows how their experience with preventive care patients compares to their peers.
Primary care physicians who have seen more patients for preventive care than at least 75% of other primary care physicians nationwide are identified with an experience badge (Top 5%, Top 15%, or Top 25%) on their doctor profile.
You can also sort by distance
When convenience is essential, you may just need to know which doctor is closest. To sort your results by distance, select Distance from the sort menu and add your address using the edit icon. The doctors closest to your address will appear first.
