eAlert 7bc4f9a0-af31-4960-8097-2effbaed54b3

The Commonwealth Fund recently announced the first four grants awarded through our new initiative, Incentives 2.0: A Synergistic Approach to Provider Incentives. The grants will look to the fields of behavioral economics, psychology, sociology, and the management sciences for new types of incentives that promote the delivery of high-value health care. <br /><br />
For some background on this initiative, we asked Mark Zezza, Assistant Vice President of Delivery System Reform and Cost Control, a few questions about what motivates physicians and other providers. Read the Q&A in this <a href="/blog/2014/provider-incentives-thinking-beyond-financial-rewards-and-penalties">new blog post,</a> and then participate in our <a href="… Chat</a> (#BOPChat) on alternative provider incentives tomorrow, Sept. 3, at 2:00 p.m., EDT. We will be joined live on Twitter by Farzad Mostashari, M.D., CEO of Aledade, and Daniel B. Wolfson, executive vice president and COO of the ABIM Foundation.<br />
