Perfecting Core Measures

Excerpt from presentation by Dr. Steve Berkowitz, president of SMB Health Consulting:

"What do we need to do to get perfect performance in each [measure]? First of all, recognize the importance of rapid identification of the core-measured patient. We are no longer in a position where we can miss a few and not worry about it. We need to identify every core-measured patient as soon as we can."
