Use of peer ratings to evaluate physician performance.
Objective.-To assess the feasibility and measurement characteristics of ratings completed by professional associates to evaluate the performance of practicing physicians.
Design.-The clinical performance of physicians was evaluated using written questionnaires mailed to professional associates (physicians and nurses).
Physician-associates were randomly selected from lists provided by both the subjects and medical supervisors, and detailed information was collected concerning the professional and social relationships between the associate and the subject.
Responses were analyzed to determine factors that affect ratings and measurement characteristics of peer ratings.
