Sea Girt NJ USA -- February 24, 2011: The alignment of incentives for both physicians and hospitals to share risk and reap rewards for coordinating care across the healthcare continuum is continuing to increase in preparation of accountable care organizations and bundled payment pilots.

With a rich history in pay-for-performance programs, HealthPartners is developing new measures and incentives to move from driving volume in healthcare services to driving value.

During Aligning Physician Incentives for Shared Risk and Reward Across the Healthcare Continuum, a 45-minute webinar on March 2nd, Babette Apland, senior vice president of health and care management for HealthPartners, will share how HealthPartners is aligning physician incentives and shared savings with pay-for-performance programs and a total cost of care initiative. You will learn:

  • How HealthPartners is sharing risk and reward with its owned physician practices and its contracted network;
  • The discrete cost and quality measures HealthPartners uses that embrace the Institute for Healthcare Improvement's Triple Aim;
  • Methodologies for adjusting for risk in pay-for-performance programs and in setting total cost of care targets; and
  • Program results in terms of health outcomes, utilization of services and healthcare costs...including which two measures had significant impacts on cost and quality.
