Physician Hospital Outpatient Analysis™
Measures physician hospital-based outpatient performance on total charge per episode, departmental charge per episode, principal physician charge per episode, number of providers per episode, number of encounters per episode, total charge per encounter, number of procedures per episode, charge per procedure, distribution per procedure, and price per procedure. Measures charge per episode by physician, major practice category, episode treatment group, and health plan/employer.
"We selected CarePoints to accurately measure the cost-effectiveness of medical services
we provide in the outpatient setting. Without a severity-adjusted, episodic approach we
would not be able to make meaningful comparisons to national norms and best
practices to objectively understand our performance. We believe this tool will enable us
to continue to improve the cost and quality of our outpatient care."
