Internship project: Comparing cost and quality between primary care providers

Project Participants

Status: Ongoing

This project aims to analyse and develop benchmarks for basic characteristics of primary care provider (PCP) practice patterns. These benchmarks would allow payers to evaluate cost effectiveness and quality among providers in their network and compare this to local, regional and national benchmarks. Basic measures would include referral rates, patterns of treatment, cost of care, utilisation rates and quality measures among other indicators. An analytical model will be developed for running comparisons of individual or group PCP practices against the benchmarks.
