PAY FOR PERFORMANCE IN THE PHYSICIAN PRACTICE
Pershing Yoakley & Associates, June 1, 2006
Financial rewards and incentives based on directly linking quality measurements to reimbursement are leading the way for a new paradigm in the health payment system. Pay for Performance (P4P) is based on the concept of measuring performance on quality standards and providing financial rewards for high achievers. Issues such as technology requirements to collect and process data, along with other obstacles are being investigated and will continue to shape the P4P model.
