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.
Listen to pre-conference comments from Babette Apland.
During Aligning Physician Incentives for Shared Risk and Reward Across the Healthcare Continuum, a 45-minute webinar on March 2, 2011, now available as a training DVD, via On Demand Web access or as a CD-ROM, Babette Apland, senior vice president of health and care management for HealthPartners, shared how HealthPartners is aligning physician incentives and shared savings with pay-for-performance programs and a total cost of care initiative.

Improvement's Triple Aim;
