Pay­ing for per­for­mance

Modern Healthcare - - NEWS -

Cre­ate align­ment be­tween the busi­ness and pay­ment mod­els.

Pay-for-per­for­mance can be dif­fi­cult to sus­tain if the or­ga­ni­za­tion has not fully moved to value-based pay, says Va­lerie Over­ton of Fairview Med­i­cal Group

Iden­tify the ac­tual bar­ri­ers to de­sired be­hav­ior and re­sults, such as lack of knowl­edge, mo­ti­va­tion or re­sources. Those fun­da­men­tal in­sights can help es­tab­lish whether a fi­nan­cial in­cen­tive is the right ap­proach, says Dan Ariely of the Cen­ter for Ad­vanced Hind­sight

Sim­plify the model: Com­pen­sa­tion pro­grams rid­dled with com­plex math­e­mat­i­cal for­mu­las that are dif­fi­cult for the av­er­age per­son to un­der­stand “typ­i­cally don’t do as well,” says Dave Gans of the MGMA

Choose ac­tion­able in­ter­ven­tions where op­por­tu­ni­ties for im­prove­ment are clear and achiev­able, says Emma Hoo of the Pa­cific Busi­ness Group on Health
