Advancing Efforts to Realign Incentives for Improving the Quality and Value of Health Care


Today, there are more than 100 pay-for-performance programs aimed at health plans, physician groups, and even patients. Not only is the number of quality measures targeted by these efforts increasing, but there is greater diversity and complexity in the design of payment incentives. Monitoring the evolution of pay-for-performance is important for understanding how it affects quality and costs. To date, one of the few trusted sources of information about pay-for-performance programs is the 2004 Leapfrog Incentives and Rewards Compendium, developed with support from the Fund and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. For this project, the Leapfrog Group will survey leaders of pay-for-performance programs nationally and catalogue these efforts in the Leapfrog Compendium according to such attributes as sponsor, types of incentives, and performance measures. The project team will also improve the usability of the compendium on the Web by incorporating new search functions and analytic capacities.
