Compared to predicted rates calculated for each doctor’s unique mix of cases and patients
To help you understand how Dr. Schwertner’s C-section rate compares to a typical pregnancy doctor:
- We first measure the actual C-section rate for the pregnant patients Dr. Schwertner treats.
- We then analyze the typical practices of all other doctors in the United States who deliver babies, using a data-driven model to predict the C-section rate for patients like Dr. Schwertner’s.
By comparing these two numbers, you can see whether Dr. Schwertner’s C-section rate is lower than, similar to, or higher than predicted.
This prediction adjusts based on the types of patients the doctor sees, so a doctor who treats sicker patients may have a different predicted rate than a doctor who treats healthier patients.
