No. Healing meters can be useful but one's hps should not be the end all and be all when it comes to judging how well a healer is doing in your raid. I'm the healing raid leader for my guild and I'm aware of the strengths and weaknesses of the healers under my wing. Any of them can heal effectively, I can tell you that. But the ones who truly shine are not always at the top of the healing meters. Our disc priest is usually at the bottom, but has done a hell of a lot of mitigation during the fight. Paladins may not top the raid healing Shamans, but the tanks they're assigned to aren't dying, either. All of them also knowing when to move, when not to, are raid aware and aren't gluing their eyes solely to the green bars. That's what makes them effective healers, regardless of where they place on the healing meters.
