A study of 21 pediatric and family physician practices found a small but negative correlation between physician productivity and quality measures related to asthma and antibiotic use. Researchers reported in the Journal for Healthcare Quality that for each 1% increase in physician productivity there was a 0.24% decrease in the rate of classification of asthma patients and 0.23% drop in the rate of classification of asthma patients on an inhaled corticosteroid.
