National symposium on using outcomes data to improve clinical practice : building on models from cardiac surgery. Keystone CO USA, 1994/06/06.
In New York State, a risk-adjusted outcomes system has been used by the Department of Health to monitor all cardiac operations since January 1989.
Hospital-specific and physician-specific results are published annually.
In this report we describe the experience of one hospital in New York State whose results showed a higher than expected surgical mortality.
Staff reactions were initially skeptical, and case reviews found no quality-of-care problems.
However, a different approach using statistical analysis of the detailed case-specific outcomes data was more revealing.
