Commensurate Ratings of Health Care.
Bectel, Gordon G.
Journal of Outcome Measurement, v4 n3 p635-666 2000-2001
Proposes a new descriptive item statistic, the mean cumulative logit, for scoring ratings of health care at the population level. Demonstrates the advantages of the method using data from the Consumer Assessment of Health Plans Study and shows that the perceived quality of health care is greater for fee-for-service plans than managed care plans in the population studied (379 adults).
