Internal Benchmark

The term internal benchmark is used to refer to outcomes benchmarking strategies that make use of the organizations own normative data. This method is most appropriate for large organizations with multiple providers and/or sites. The internal benchmark answers the question of how each patient's outcome compares to that of other patients served by the same organization, after adjusting for differences in case mix.

Internal benchmarking can be achieved through use of the generalized linear model, which calculates a predicted change score for each patient as well as a residualized gain score (difference between predicted and actual change).
