With a growing cohort of performance-minded surgeons who have entered data on over 200,000 surgical cases, SurgicalPerformance enables ’Quantified Reflection’ across their cases and their colleagues de-identified cases. That’s why, as an example RANZCOG credits its SurgicalPerformance users with 1 CPD Hour for every 6 cases entered. Simply put, they’re valuing the difference between ’kind of knowing’ and knowing precisely.
Patients find it reassuring that I can quantify my performance across similar procedures.
For every 6 cases in SurgicalPerformance, you can claim 1 CPD hour in OM. However, these SurgicalPerformance cases need to have completed a 4 to 6 weeks follow up. A minimum of 12 cases/2 hours are required to claim CPD. For RANZCOG, you need to claim a minimum of 5 hours and a maximum of 30 hours in the OM category.
Performance Review (PR) You can claim up to 3 CPD hours by reviewing your SurgicalPerformance outcomes data with a peer (colleague).
In the words of Dr Albert Jung, “The question always is… How do we get better?” SurgicalPerformance enables you to quantify your performance, know your numbers, know how you compare to the de-identified average from over 200,000 cases entered, know you’re not an outlier, know your patients better and foster better doctor/patient relationships.
