Outpatient gallbladder removal rate

Dr. Brown’s outpatient gallbladder removal rate is similar to the rate we predicted for her mix of cases and patients.
75%
outpatient gallbladder removal rate

As a patient, you may prefer a doctor who has a higher rate of outpatient gallbladder removal to improve your odds of having an uncomplicated recovery after surgery.

Decision factor

Compared to predicted rates calculated for each doctor’s unique mix of cases and patients

  • Lower than our predicted rate
  • Higher than our predicted rate
  • Similar to our predicted rate

Hospitalizations are costly and associated with a higher risk of infections, so avoiding unnecessary hospital stays can save money and improve your odds of having an uncomplicated recovery after surgery. Gallbladder removals are commonly performed in an outpatient setting, avoiding hospitalizations altogether.

To help you understand how Dr. Brown’s rate of outpatient gallbladder removal compares to a typical doctor who performs gallbladder removals:

  1. We first measure how many of Dr. Brown’s gallbladder removals were performed in an outpatient setting.
  2. We then analyze the typical practices of all other doctors in the United States who perform gallbladder removals, using a data-driven model to predict the rate of outpatient gallbladder removal for patients like Dr. Brown’s.

By comparing these two numbers, you can see whether Dr. Brown’s rate of outpatient gallbladder removal 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.
