Performance measurement is the quantitative assessment of health care processes and outcomes for which a health care practitioner, health care organization, or health care system may be accountable. As the landscape of the health care system continues to evolve, health care professionals are being forced to examine how they evaluate their performance. With increased pressure to reduce costs and improve quality of care for patients, many physicians still struggle with how to achieve this. To meet the needs of the changing environment, your Academy is actively working to develop and provide evidence based clinical tools and resources that will enhance the quality of care provided by physiatrists.
