Figure F-1. Conceptual Model for the Expected Population Value of Quality Indicator (QI) Reporting

The model consists of four text boxes with arrows pointing from one to the next. In the upper left corner is 'Quality Indicator Reporting'; an arrow captioned 'Probability that information will lead to QI is variable' points down from this box to 'Quality Improvement Action to Change Provider Behavior.' An arrow captioned 'Effectiveness of QI in changing provider behavior is variable' points from this box to 'Change in Rates of Performing Standards of Care.' An arrow with no caption points up from this box to 'Change in Population Health Benefits/Cost Savings.' A dotted-line arrow with no caption points from 'Change in Population HealthBenefits/Cost Savings' back to 'Quality Indicator Reporting'.

Note: Patients may also change behavior based on quality indicator reporting, for example by selecting high-quality providers, causing changes in the rates at which care delivered meets standards of care.
