This book first looks at changes in the health care environment, changes in physician life-style expectations, and pressures that gave rise to the profiling of health care (and of physicians).
After introducing the elements of a physician profile and exploring the process itself, the book explores some concerns about the use of profiling data in malpractice cases and in credentialing and about matters of confidentiality.
The book emphasizes and explains the requirements of adequacy of data collection, cross-referencing of data sets, and various issues in data analysis. This resource provides case reviews of the profiling experience of several different kinds of organizations - a teaching hospital, a multi-specialty medical group, a large medical health plan, a government organization, an academic center, and a pharmacy benefits plan.
The ACPE is the AMA-recognized specialty society representing physicians in health care leadership.
