In New Jersey, testing a new doctor-pay method
Philadelphia Inquirer, August 20, 2009

If the "gainsharing" experiment with Medicare patients works, doctors and hospitals will share the financial rewards. Hospitals contend the current system's incentives are "misaligned" so that hospitals are rewarded for lowering costs, while doctors are not.
