Description
Public reporting of and pay-for-performance programs tied to clinical measures are in use at a growing number of healthcare organizations in an effort to increase provider accountability for healthcare quality. Increasingly, however, concerns have been raised about the potential for unintended consequences of performance measurement and reporting that might lead to patient harm.

Listen to pre-conference comments from Bratzler.

During this 45-minute roundtable audio conference on CD-ROM, we examined some of the unintended consequences from pay-for-performance programs and how healthcare organizations can circumvent these problems. Industry expert Dr. Dale Bratzler, QIOSC medical director, Oklahoma Foundation for Medical Quality Inc., provided a brief overview of the potential unintended consequences of public reporting that could lead to patient harm in both direct and indirect ways.

Dr. Bratzler also described how avoiding these unintended consequences of performance measurement requires careful attention to the development of measure specifications and setting realistic goals for improvement.

Conference participants then had the opportunity to probe for more details and bring to the "table" the areas of concern in their organization.

Available in three formats

  • CD-ROM for computer play
  • CD-ROM for stereo play
  • On Demand version accessible online

Please note the stereo version ships as two CD-ROMs, whereas the .mp3 version ships as one CD-ROM.
