ABSTRACT
This article comments on a clinical study according to which administrative data feedback failed to improve quality of care in acute myocardial infarction. Researchers' findings that early hospital feedback failed to improve adherence to management guidelines, while perhaps disappointing, enhance the understanding of the difficulties in influencing the complex and variable systems in which care is provided. Perhaps the most important take-home messages from the researchers are that people do not perform as well as they think they do, systems are more complex than they think they are, improvements do not come as easily or quickly as they think they should, and no one really knows how to change systems.
