Transparency can play a vital role in the success of pay for performance
Pay-for-performance (P4P) initiatives continue to gain momentum. More hospitals have signed on and committed to a program. As they do so, trans parency (i.e., the sharing of performance data) has emerged as a critical issue. That point was emphasized during the October 2005 HCPro audioconfer ence "Pay for performance: Roadmap to data collection success." Public reporting of data can be a vital part of the P4P cycle, said John D. Collier, senior manager of healthcare consulting at Pershing Yoakley & Associates in Knoxville, TN.
