How do you compare physician performance?
Response: For physician comparisons across clinical protocols and other metrics, Health Catalyst has developed several clinical registries, or modules. The modules are based on an architecture that is designed to allow for registry population identification using both administrative and clinical criteria. Those criteria are then combined to form complex cohort definitions that are often required to develop clinically accurate cohorts or to account for the complex inclusion/exclusion criteria that are often required of regulatory or standards-based measures.
The architecture also allows for the definition of various metrics. These metrics are based on clinical protocols, evidence-based guidelines, and regulatory guidelines and can be combined with populations defined in the architecture.
Each module captures data at a granular level and allows stratification on many criteria, including by physician, which allows for easy comparison of physician performance.
