Introduction

Eliminate Scoring! Focus on Performance Improvement Plans for Clinical Concerns!

The “Peer Review” world for addressing clinical concerns is changing dramatically – and for the better!  Performance improvement plans (“PIPs”) are now commonly used to keep patients safe and help physicians constructively address clinical issues.  A wide range of PIP options are available to you – physician leaders are limited only by their creativity in developing solutions to help their colleagues improve.

As brief examples, concerns about the medical necessity of a physician’s procedures could be addressed by having the physician develop checklists with appropriate indications for the procedure, while concerns about a knowledge deficit could be addressed by having a physician review the medical literature and present a grand round on the topic.

However, a PIP that would otherwise be effective in theory will almost always fail if it’s not properly implemented.  The devil is in the detail!   Join us and review those details!
