Negative feedback from public quality reporting programs can help spur EHR optimization among hospitals, according to a study published in JAMA Network Open, writes EHR Intelligence.
Hospitals that received negative feedback from a patient safety quality reporting program improved their clinical decision support (CDS) quality 8.4 percentage points more than those that received positive feedback in the subsequent year, the study found. In other words, that negative feedback was a successful motivator for hospitals to adopt technology that could improve healthcare quality, the researchers said.
