Eric Peterson named one of nation’s top cardiologists

December 5, 2017 – The list, published by Forbes, was compiled by an algorithm created by medical technology company Grand Rounds.

DCRI Executive Director Eric Peterson, MD, MPH, has been named one of the nation’s top 27 cardiologists, as chosen by the medical technology company Grand Rounds.

The list was published online today by Forbes.

Grand Rounds uses a database of approximately 700,000 physicians, 96 percent of the U.S. total, and merges it with insurance-claims data and biographical information to evaluate doctors based on the quality of their work. Using this information and a proprietary algorithm, the company then matches patients to the best available physician.

In addition to Peterson, the list included the University of Cincinnati’s Richard C. Becker, MD, formerly of the DCRI, as well as physicians from the Cleveland Clinic, the Mayo Clinic, Johns Hopkins University, and other institutions.
