New From AHRQ: Evidence-Based Strategies for Developing Effective Physician Feedback Reports

Performance feedback reports help physicians assess the care they provide with the ultimate goal of improving quality, patient experience, and optimum use of resources. However, their effectiveness depends on how they are designed and implemented. AHRQ’s new funded resource, Confidential Physician Feedback Reports: Designing for Optimal Impact on Performance tackles this situation and offers a wide variety of healthcare organizations (hospitals, medical groups, health plans, professional societies, regional collaboratives, and dissemination and implementation campaigns), the evidence-based strategies needed to optimally support quality improvement.

Whether you are refining or creating a new physician feedback report system, this AHRQ resource will help your team implement these four evidence-based strategies: identify a clinical focus to improve, ensure the input data supports the report aims, optimize the functional use of the reports, and deliver reports to promote impact. The report can be found at http://www.ahrq.gov/professionals/clinicians-providers/resources/confidreportguide/index.html?utm_source=PSListserv&utm_medium=Email&utm_content=1&utm_term=14&utm_campaign=AHRQ_ConfReports
