DI Physician Performance Advisor (PPA) enables institutions to:
- Monitor and manage physician performance
- Meet requirements of professional organizations
- Analyze reported data to create more effective care systems
Physician performance management hinges on the timely delivery of accurate, role-appropriate information and feedback. This task, vital to any hospital or health system’s quality of care, is difficult, due to the mass of data, held on dozens of internal and external data sources, needed to properly assess physician performance. Dimensional Insight (DI) has leveraged its award-winning data integration, modeling, and analysis capabilities to produce the DI Physician Performance Advisor™ (PPA). This new turn-key application lets hospitals merge their various data sources into one web-based tool with embedded analytics, creating a single source to review, monitor, and analyze activities and metrics related to physician performance.
Each physician has a dashboard-based profile that provides a picture of the physician’s performance. The simple point-and-click interface lets users to dig deeper into the details. These details can be used to adjust each physician’s area of practice for factors such as risk/severity data, patient satisfaction, and facility to measure performance against a consistent standard. Additionally, PPA enables comparisons of performance against national standards, or among and between groups, such as the obstetrics departments in multiple facilities, to identify best practices and areas that need improvement. Because physicians have access to this data, they are more likely to participate willingly in efforts to improve performance.
PPA’s analytics also help hospitals meet goals set by professional organizations. Because PPA regularly updates physician performance data, organizations have more detailed data with which to make credentialing decisions for physicians. In addition, data can be easily extracted into reports, helping hospitals more easily meet Joint Commission requirements for Ongoing Professional Practice Evaluation (OOPE) and Focused Professional Practice Evaluation (FPPE).
