Kaiser Health News writes: The government takes performance into account when paying hospitals, one of the biggest changes in Medicare’s 50-year-history. Kaiser Health News has tracked the major incentive programs created by the federal health law: penalties for hospitals that readmit too many people within 30 days, penalties for hospitals with excess numbers of patient injuries, and bonuses and penalties for hospitals based on several dozen quality measures, including patient satisfaction and death rates. KHN also provides easy-to-read charts and downloadable data sets that show Medicare’s financial actions for hospitals throughout the country.
