Chart Audit Methods  Identification of GI practices with high clusters of UC patients  We used the AMA Physician Masterfile to rank states with largest numbers of GI p practices to achieve geographic g g p representation p

 Screening of gastroenterologists for eligibility criteria  Final selection and contracting of 30 GI practices  300 charts were abstracted at baseline for PQRS measures and practice trends linked to evidence-based guidelines

QI Study: Baseline Findings and a d Observations Obse at o s  Low rates of adherence to PQRS measures and practice guidelines  For 7 of 8 PQRS measures: 1% to 59% (mean = 36%)  Remarkable collegial interaction between participants and expert faculty  Gastroenterologists actively reflected on gaps and strategies for improving quality measures  Chart review data and pre/post learner assessment data provide id early l validation lid i off the h need d for f education d i in i quality improvement

Challenges for QI Projects  Staying updated with rapid, ongoing changes in quality measures and initiatives  Collaborating with numerous partners  Accessing, abstracting, and analyzing quality measures  Addressing potentially negative attitudes about the value of documenting and reporting ti quality lit measures

Next Steps  Follow-up chart audits 6 months after educational d ti l activities ti iti  Patient data analysis and individual benchmark reporting to gastroenterologists  Completion of learner survey and control analyses  Continued C ti d dissemination di i ti and d promotion ti off the th enduring activities to the greater community p of GI practices  Sharing results of the QI project in a mainstream GI journal with a goal to assist gastroenterologists newly engaged in required reporting © 2013 PRIME Education, Inc.
