National symposium on using outcomes data to improve clinical practice : building on models from cardiac surgery. Keystone CO USA, 1994/06/06.
This study examined changes in the risk-adjusted mortality associated with coronary artery bypass grafting procedures performed in New York State during the first 4 years of New York's Cardiac Surgery Reporting System (1989 to 1992).
To track performance over time, surgeons and hospitals were subdivided into three groups on the basis of their performance in 1989.
The risk-adjusted mortality for each of the three groups was computed for 1992 and compared with their 1989 mortality.
The results indicate that all groups of providers exhibited large reductions in the risk-adjusted mortalities, with the groups that showed the highest initial mortalities manifesting the most improvement.
However, the group rankings remained the same in 1992 as they were in 1989.
