Medical staffs must do their best to determine low-volume practitioners’ competence, but many work with a less-than-ideal amount of data. Some data come from internal documentation, such as medical records. Other data may come from an outside facility where a practitioner is active. Regardless, the goal is to collect enough data to make an accurate judgment of a practitioner’s competence.
