Summary/Abstract

Surgeon-level reporting on surgical outcomes is a controversial topic that has received much blowback from the medical community, but Ashish Jha, MD, MPH, believes it is a necessary step to ensure top quality care, according to an op-ed penned in JAMA. Surgical outcomes are currently reported by hospital, but many critics of surgeon-level reporting argue that individual outcomes offer too small a sample size to accurately gauge an organization's level of quality.
