Over the past 3 years, millions of dollars have been awarded to physicians as quality improvement incentives. Health plans are “rushing” to develop performance-related physician incentive programs. And CMS has now introduced its own incentive demonstration for medicine. Managed care is widely embracing this initiative, while physicians remain skeptical.
Is there a "right way" to get physician buy-in of pay-for-performance (P4P)? What makes for an effective outcomes-based incentive program? How is a "P4P" program implemented? What do health plans want in a provider performance program? What are the categories for physician incentives and hospital measures?
