What it’s all about
The benchmarking function of a practice management comparison makes it possible to quantify the qualitative descriptions of the work of a medical practice and to compare them with objective-representative measured variables. In this way, it is possible not only to record the type and intensity of the regulations used to manage the practice, but also their effects, so that a 360-degree view of the practice’s work emerges. Key performance indicators (KPIs) can be derived from the comparison. An application example for the field of action „organisation“ illustrates their potential.
