ABSTRACT
This article presents information on a clinical study according to which administrative data feedback failed to improve quality of care in acute myocardial infarction. The study explored in patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI), whether immediate feedback using hospital report cards improves quality of care. Immediate feedback did not increase β-blocker prescription filling or reduce AMI mortality more than delayed feedback. The study concluded that in patients with acute myocardial infarction, immediate administrative data feedback to hospitals did not improve quality of patient care.
