Performance-based assessment of radiology faculty: a practical plan to promote improvement and meet JCAHO standards.AJR Am J Roentgenol. 2005 May; 184(5):1398-401.AA
The objective of this article is to describe the process of implementing a program for performance-based assessment of clinical faculty.
A performance-based assessment of clinical faculty program facilitated quality improvements in our department, improved communication concerning our reappointment process, and was well received by faculty. The presence of measures on a scorecard stresses what is important for clinical care and facilitates process improvement in these areas. Having practitioner-specific data compiled in an organized fashion helps meet the standards of the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO).
