Sea Girt NJ USA -- June 18, 2010: From pay-for-performance programs to shared savings models, a growing number of organizations are testing the ability to pay for quality and not quantity of healthcare services. The collection and sharing of physician performance data is critical to supporting these initiatives.

Taconic IPA, through a community transformation program in partnership with THINC, is leveraging performance reporting data to engage physicians in quality improvement while increasing reimbursement rates for its physicians.

During Improving Physician Performance and Value-Based Reimbursement Levels Through Meaningful Data Sharing, a 45-minute webinar on June 23rd at 1:30 pm Eastern, Paul Kaye, MD, medical director at Taconic IPA and Susan Stuard, executive director, THINC, will describe how the sharing of data across its organization is improving physician performance and value-based reimbursement levels, including details on:

  • Measuring, reporting and rewarding physician performance improvement;
  • Getting physician buy-in for performance level reporting and reimbursement;
  • Best practices for internal and external benchmarking;
  • Determining which performance indicators to use;
  • Balancing the need between not enough and too much data;
  • Adjusting data for risk and sample size;
  • Data collection methods and reporting frequency; and
  • Reimbursing physicians on performance improvement.

During a pre-conference interview, Dr. Kaye describes how along with the transformation to a patient-centered medical home came an acceptance of a model that coordinates care for an entire population, not just the patients showing up each day. And even though the 238 Taconic physicians at 11 sites have received Level III PPC-PCMH recognition from the NCQA, Susan Stuard, executive director of THINC, explains that practice transformation doesn't stop there.
