The Rand Structured Implicit Review Instrument is a 27-item instrument that rates process quality of care for patients with five common illnesses.
This study reports on the use of this instrument for hospitalized patients with long lengths of stay.
A total of 120 medical records were reviewed by multiple physician reviewers for patients discharged with congestive heart failure, acute myocardial infarction, and pneumonia.
Mean inter-rater reliability was assessed for a subsample of six records by kappa score.
A multiple regression analysis was used to estimate the relationship between process ratings for the quality of documentation, assessment, monitoring, and therapy and overall quality of care scores, controlled for physician judgments about patient's prognosis and selected patient characteristics.
