Manasquan NJ USA -- August 14, 2006: Zeroing in on the needs and values of physicians can be the crucial element between the success and failure of a pay-for-performance program.

"Making the Business Case for Physician Participation and Engagement in Pay-for-Performance Programs," a September 6, 2006 audio conference, will present case studies of how pay-for-performance (PFP) programs initially engaged physicians to participate in their programs and how they are keeping them motivated for continued participation.
