Physian Performance and Quality – No Relationship?

“Performance improvement” CME

I found on a Blog called Trusted MD. It is syndicated by R. W. Donnell | Mon, 04/18/2011

It is a response to a comment by Daniel Carlat a few days ago.
about the emerging importance of PI CME.

He says, “I knew we were moving in this direction but I was not aware that “PI CME” was official. Dan Carlat blogged this yesterday. As one would expect he’s mainly concerned about industry getting in on the trend, but between the lines of his post I read a measure of concern about the whole idea of PI CME. I’m concerned too. Performance has little to do with quality, or good doctoring by any definition.”

Unbelievable!  What physicians do – their performance – has little to do with quality, or good doctoring”? I completely understand there are many determinants of quality and good “doctoring”. To assert that what physicians do -their performance- in patient care has no impact on quality is unfathomable to me.
