The GRID Quarterly Physician Report provides measures for each physician within a facility for those physicians who submit monthly physician data. Aggregate data across all physicians, and for all GRID facilities, are also provided for comparison purposes. Reports are posted quarterly and are available through the Aggregate Reports menu item in the NRDR Homepage Facility Management menu. A sample report is available here.

The Measures Definitions table provides a brief description of each measure listed in the report. There are two types of process measures, available to all participants. There are up to three outcome measures available for participants who provide the required data.

  • Digital radiography repeat rate 

  • Turnaround Time statistics by modality (Radiography, Ultrasound, CT, MRI, and PET). 

Summary tables provide results for process and outcome measures for each physician, for the facility, and for the entire registry.

GRID Physician Report - Process Measures Summary

Table cells are left blank for categories for which a facility was unable to provide data. The Sitecolumn reflects the aggregate data for the physicians shown in the table and may differ from the measures found in the report if data was not provided for all physicians. All participants receive a table of process measures and outcome measures if available. The report includes tables and charts for each process measure with data for each physician, the facility, and all GRID sites.

GRID Physician Report - Measure Variation Table

The first two rows of the data table provide counts for the number of exams submitted as well as the number of physician forms submitted to the registry for each physician. The next two rows provide tallies of the total number of physicians and the number of facilities contributing data for the reporting period. Physicians with zero forms submitted are not counted toward the Physicians'total in row three. Data for each measure is also plotted on box plots, with results for each physician, for all physicians in the facility, and for the entire registry.

Trend charts show measures for the performance period, by month, for each physician, and for the facility.

GRID Physician Report - Measure Trend

Unlike tables and box plots, trend charts aggregate all data for the facility, rather than just the monthly physician forms. Facility data sets may be larger and the trend may be significantly different than specific physicians plotted. 

Reports include results for outcomes when data is available for at least one physician.
