Guiding Principles for Public Reporting

Over the past decade, the number of organizations reporting hospital and physician quality performance data has increased. In order to address concerns regarding the variation in this performance data, an advisory group of hospital quality experts convened by the AAMC developed a set of guiding principles for publicly reporting provider performance data.

Below, please find the “Guiding Principles for Public Reporting of Provider Performance,” which call for data and reporting methodologies to be well-defined in terms of purpose, transparency, and validity.

For additional information on this AAMC initiative, please contact Jennifer Faerberg or Mary Wheatley.
