Sea Girt NJ USA -- January 25, 2011: With the dual goal of improving the value of healthcare and enhancing the compensation to primary care physicians, Capital District Physicians' Health Plan Inc., (CDPHP), a network model health plan, launched a 2-phase pilot in 2008 to reform both the practice of primary care in its network and the payment to these physicians.

This medical home project, which started with three practices in Phase One, is expanding this year in Phase Two to include 21 additional practices. Practices receive an incentive for practice transformation and are eligible for additional reimbursement for meeting quality and efficiency targets.

During Funding Primary Care Practice Reform with Physician Payment Reform: A Medical Home's Experience, a 45-minute webinar on February 23rd, presenter Bruce Nash, MD, MBA, senior vice president of medical affairs and chief medical officer for Capital District Physicians' Health Plan Inc. (CDPHP), will describe how CDPHP met the challenge of developing a novel risk adjustment methodology that would drive a global payment combined with a significant bonus structure to attract physician participation and encourage future growth by medical students to enter primary care.

  • How to develop a risk adjusted global payment with quality and efficiency bonuses that align financial incentives with PCPs;
  • Elements to consider when developing quality and efficiency targets based on IHI'S Triple Aim of patient experience, improved outcomes and cost reduction;
  • The challenges of measure selection and the potential to use surrogate measures to provide real-time physician feedback; and
  • Preliminary results from Phase 1 of the project from the practice and the health plan perspective including the cost savings on a risk adjusted basis for pilot participants and its potential bottom line impact for the health plan and the participating practices.
