At the American College of Surgeons Clinical Congress, Dr Verrier spoke on the topic of elite athletes and their comparison to surgeons (facs.org/clincon2016/about/res...). Today's sports world utilizes a dizzying array of analytics to track athlete diet, exercise, sleep in addition to performance, position, and decision-making. I'm always surprised to hear of the latest analytics at the Sloan Sports Conference.
As technology improves documentation of decisions and procedural performance (even down to eye tracking in the OR), could we see analytics applied to physicians? Could big data eventually change reimbursement or hiring of individual physicians? Could we see smart EMRs preferentially route consults to particular physicians that analytics deems better at diagnosing or treating condition X?
