XpertDox has launched a hospital finder search functionality tool.

Here are five things to know about the tool.

1. XpertDox, a website focused on improving care of patients with rare and/or serious diseases, launched the tool that allows patients to find the best hospitals for a particular disease, procedure or specialty.

2. The company launched the tool July 1.
