Harnessing Physicians’ Competitive Nature
Among the most powerful drivers of behavior change is the simple act of comparing. Choosing which benchmarks to use may not be easy, but a great place to start is within your own organization. Clinigence automatically equips you with such internal benchmarks. For physicians who tend to be competitive by nature, there may not be a more powerful motivator than peer performance within their team. In other cases, your organization may already be measured against outside benchmarks provided by payers or other 3rd parties. For example, CMS measures ACOs starting in their 2nd performance year against quality benchmarks calculated across all ACOs. You can also set your own performance goals and track your progress towards them.
