Chapter 19 discusses how patients, referring physicians, regulatory agencies, and third-party payers all collect data on physician performance, analyze it, and use it to guide their choices. Also discussed is how radiologists can recognize that the same data can also be used to guide process improvement efforts, as well as how measurements are the starting point for any data-driven decision-making process.
