According to Safeguard Services, all providers who received the original 2010 CBR are being sent a new, updated report. This new report shows the original 2009 data and compares in to the providers 2011 data. It is being used to contrast and compare where you were - to where you are.
The CBR contains the same graphs as the original; Average Number of Services per Beneficiary by CPT andNumber of Beneficiaries by Three Categories of Distinct Diagnoses. It compares your 2011 data to the whole of the State and National providers. The differences - and the value - lie in the tables supporting the graphs.
These tables show a comparison of your 2009 services to your 2011 services. If you received a CBR in 2010, you did so because your practice was statistically different from that of your state and national peers. This new report gives those providers a glimpse into how their practice has changed since that original report. You can view an example of the original CBR here.
If your utilization remains substantially higher than that of your state and national peers, it may be an indication of an area of concern. It may warrant some additional steps.
