Provider profiling has been advanced in recent years as a way to evaluate and compare health care providers with respect to specific aspects of the quality of care (QOC) they offer. Despite significant morbidity, mortality and costs associated with cancer, oncology lags behind other medical fields in evidence-based assessments of QOC and in identifying providers who consistently perform better or worse than their peers. We propose to investigate the structure of the patient- provider relationship in the Medicare database and discuss some of the methodologic challenges involved in profiling.
