Manasquan NJ USA -- August 27, 2007: Current quality measures focus on patient care upon admittance and end of stay but tend to ignore all aspects of care during the patient's stay, says Dr. Dale Bratzler, medical director of the Hospital Interventions Quality Improvement Organization Support Center. He identifies several areas where improvement may result in better transitions of care, including the patient's discharge from the hospital. Listen Dr. Braztler's describe these areas.

Dr. Bratzler will provide an overview of the potential unintended consequences of public reporting that could lead to patient harm in both direct and indirect ways during a September 6th audio conference roundtable, "Ensuring the Benefits of Public Reporting and Pay-for-Performance Programs Outweigh the Unintended Consequences."

Dr. Bratzler will also describe how avoiding these unintended consequences of performance measurement requires careful attention to the development of measure specifications and setting realistic goals for improvement. Conference participants will then have the opportunity to probe for more details and bring to the "table" the areas of concern in their organization during the roundtable discussion.
