Abstract

Background: Practice Management Report is a tool used to describe the practice activity and productivity for each resident. The aim of this study is to monitor resident adherence to ACGME-I performance standards.

Methods: Data was extracted and analyzed from practice management reports of all family medicine residents for the period from July 2014 to June 2015. Total number of residents was 31 residents.

Results: Residents reached the target of total number of patient visits by 43% while reached the target of male/ female ratio by 62%. Residents reached the target of hospital admission visits by 27%. Residents reached the target of seeing patients less than 19 years by 87% while reached the target of seeing patients more than 60 years by 22%. Residents reached the target of patients visit distribution by 21%. Residents completed their chart audit by 97% and achieved patient satisfaction by 99%. The most deficient cases seen by residents were high risk pregnancy by 43%, well baby cases by 20%, eye problems by 16% and Asthma by 11%.

Conclusion: Practice management report is of considerable importance to monitor and assess resident performance according to ACGME-I standards. Despite some difficulties in its application and analysis process, it will guide improving deficiencies in areas as antenatal and well-baby care and physician alert system.
