Influencing hospitalist clinical productivity with feedback.
J Med Pract Manage. 2012 Mar-Apr;27(5):301-4
Authors: Robinson RL, Burk MS
Periodic clinical productivity feedback with peer comparison produces significant changes to CPT code distributions, which leads to improvements in per-encounter work relative value units (wRVUs) (+25%) and charges (+20%). Improved wRVU production and charges can lead to increased collections, thus improving a practice's financial outlook without increasing patient volume. These interventions have minimal cost or risk to a hospitalist practice.
