As part of our commitment to data validity and reliability, MSQC conducts inter-rater reliability (IRR) clinical data review at each participating hospital.
In brief, the process for the IRR is as follows:
- If requested, complete this form to provide contact information for the MSQC Clinical Site Coordinators to be granted remote access to the site’s EMR for the IRR.
- 2 weeks prior to the IRR, the site will be notified by the MSQC Coordinating Center of when the IRR will begin at their site along with the 15 case numbers that have been chosen at random for potential audit.
- A minimum of 4 out of the 15 cases will be reviewed by at least two MSQC Clinical Site Coordinators.
- Approximately 2 weeks following the review, the Coordinating Center will return IRR results and summary to the site for review.
- After the results and summary are reviewed by the site, a mutually convenient date and time for a web-conference or site visit may be held to allow for discussion of the IRR results between the site and the MSQC Coordinating Center.
- Following this discussion, a final report will be forwarded to the SCQR, Supervisor, and Surgeon Champion at the site.
