Physician Attribution

Creating individual physician profiles around inpatient metrics such as length of stay, readmission rates, and case mix index at the individual physician level is particularly difficult in a teaching program or in a hospitalist setting due to the common practice of assigning outcome measures from a patient to the discharging physician. This in turn, causes issues with Ongoing Professional Practice Evaluations (OPPE) and quality or utilization improvement initiatives because physicians discover patients have been inaccurately assigned to their profile.

Physician Attribution solves this problem through algorithms that identifies the physician most responsible for managing the care of a patient during an inpatient stay. The attribution data is then used to feed in-house software as well as third party reporting and benchmarking tools. The Physician Attribution process allows your hospital to have accurate and widely accepted data to be used as a basis for quality and operational improvements.
