Editors Note As health care leaders attempt to address consumer demands, enhance the quality of patient care, and adhere to constantly shrinking budgets, physician productivity has been placed under the microscope. But associating productivity with patient care is not without controversy. Physician Profiling seeks to reconcile physician autonomy and increased output. Written by top health care executives and consultants, this book provides a practical understanding of physician profiling and explains its effect on medical group practices. Using profiling software systems, physician leaders can tell who their most -- and least -- productive doctors are and how they deviate from the norm. Rich in case studies and tips for success, Physician Profiling shows health care management professionals how to use profiling data responsibly and accurately, and in many instances how data can assist physicians in finding the right treatment plan for a specific illness -- ultimately improving the quality of patient care.
