Aligning Physician and Executive Compensation with Population Health Management
As healthcare evolves, providers are beginning to take steps to understand how to succeed under value-based payments. Much of this success will eventually depend upon an organization’s ability to manage population health. This white paper looks at what healthcare organizations are doing to realign incentives as payers shift risk to providers; as reimbursement shifts from fee-for-service to bundled payments, shared savings, and capitation; and as payers and providers embrace population health management.
There has been relatively little change so far in the metrics used for rewarding physicians and executives, so this publication also explores patterns that suggest what changes providers will make in the future, when the time is right.
