Chapter 5 1. Describe how we measure the clinical performance of an HCO as a whole? For example, can you aggregate good performance in cardiology and poor performance in obstetrics, and say “overall, performance is average”? We measure the clinical performance of an HCO as a whole using the operational scorecard template for any service line that contains the different details in the demand and quality measures. In most applications, a few measures are selected in each dimension for goal setting. In the scorecard you have the clinical service lines, nursing support, clinical support, and office of quality management. The demand is evaluated by the accounting systems which give the details of the data on the kind of service, such as the demand for care. It can also be measured by the patient scheduling and intake systems. The epidemiologic planning model constructs demand forecasts from available community information. It is also used to evaluate effectiveness. The model can construct benchmarks for major clinical events and can be compared to actual demand to identify overuse or underuse. The national quality measure clearing house is a service that provides detailed information on definitions, adjustments, scientific foundation, and rationale for measure and measure sets. A hierarchical array links related measures. The clearing house is the starting point for any discussion of clinical performance measurement. The leapfrog group also advocates performance improvement practices and surveys HCOs o assess their compliance. P4P initiatives are collaborations with providers and other stakeholders to ensure that valid quality measures are used, that outcomes are measures are true indicators of quality of care that providers are not being pulled in conflicting directions, and that providers have support for achieving actual improvement (white, 168-72).
