Research Brief: Trends in delegation of tasks to nurses by top physicians

This research brief looks to test the hypothesis that highly efficient internists, those that deliver high quality care at a lower cost, have different approaches to delegating tasks to nurses and other office-based clinical staff than average performers.

RB- Delegation PracticesBackground:
  • There is minimal understanding of the individual physician factors that drive greater cost-efficiency of health care without sacrificing quality.
  • Some of this variation may be attributable to variation in utilization of nurses, including nature of task delegation.
