Regional variations in health care intensity and physician perceptions of quality of care.

Regional variations in health care intensity and physician perceptions of quality of care. Research has documented dramatic differences in health care utilization and spending across U.S. regions with similar levels of patient illness. Although patient outcomes and quality of care have been found to be no better in regions of high health care intensity, it is unknown whether physicians in these regions feel more capable of providing good patient care than those in low-intensity regions. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Annals of internal medicine Pubmed

Regional variations in health care intensity and physician perceptions of quality of care.


Abstract

Research has documented dramatic differences in health care utilization and spending across U.S. regions with similar levels of patient illness. Although patient outcomes and quality of care have been found to be no better in regions of high health care intensity, it is unknown whether physicians in these regions feel more capable of providing good patient care than those in low-intensity regions.
