McIntosh N, Burgess JF, Meterko M, Restuccia JD, Alt-White AC, Kaboli P, Charns M. Impact of provider coordination on nurse and physician perceptions of patient care quality. Journal of nursing care quality. 2014 Jul 1; 29(3):269-79.
The objective of this study was to assess the role of provider coordination on nurse manager and physician perceptions of care quality, while controlling for organizational factors. Findings indicated that nurse-nurse coordination was positively associated with nurse manager perceptions of care quality; neither physician-physician nor physician-nurse coordination was associated with physician perceptions. Organizational factors associated with positive perceptions of care quality included facility support of education for nurses and physicians, and the use of multidisciplinary rounding.
