Quality, Efficiency and Results


In this special report, "Pay for Performance: Raising the Bar on Quality, Efficiency and Results," based on two recent audio conferences, a panel of experts shared their experiences: healthcare consultants analyzed the results of national studies on the reach of Pay for Performance programs among U.S.-based health plans and sketched out a timeline for future developments, while three organizations described their ongoing efforts to build cohesive P4P programs.
P4P, the burgeoning movement in the healthcare industry to align financial incentives with improved results, is touted as a means of improving healthcare quality without increasing costs. Health plans are now devising metrics for tying millions of dollars in physician bonus incentives to healthcare quality outcomes.
