Certification and recertification : a consumer's view.
The burgeoning of major research related to the effectiveness and appropriateness of clinical treatment methods as part of efforts to improve the quality of patient care provides added emphasis to consumer needs for certification and recertification.
While there are multiple factors involved, the prime consumer question continues to be « How good is the physician and surgeon? » The combination of increased services delivered on an outpatient basis and in doctor's offices gives added weight to the importance of peer-approved physician competence.
So, too, are the Health Care Financing Administration's (HCFA) efforts to report on the quality of care in hospitals and its first reports on the quality of services in nursing homes.
