Raising the Bar: A Guide to Orthopedic Benchmarking
How do we define a ‘good’ outcome in health care?
This is a really tough question to answer. A lot of incredibly smart people in health care are trying to associate data to define this historically vague question. Meaningful, benchmarked patient-reported outcome data is one of the data sets proving promising in uncovering powerful insights from the patient perspective.
Two examples of benchmarking in orthopedics:
Comparing functional patient-reported outcome data: Surgeons can see how they compare to their colleagues, and better yet use the data to find ways to improve outcomes for everyone in the organization.
Comparing patient experience PROMs: Organizations can learn about wait times, whether the pre-op class was helpful, and how that varies by provider, location, and nationally.
