Catalyst for Payment Reform (CPR), a non-profit corporation working to improve the quality of health care while also reducing costs, has selected New Jersey and Virginia as two of three states to pilot Scorecard 2.0 – CPR’s Scorecard on Payment Reform. A third state will be announced shortly. A pilot in New Jersey will be facilitated by the New Jersey Health Care Quality Institute or Quality Institute (NJHCQI). A pilot in Virginia will be sponsored jointly by the Virginia Center for Health Innovation and the Virginia Association of Health Plans. Scorecard “2.0,” will continue to measure how much payment reform there is and of what type. It will also measure, at a macro level, the impact that payment reform is having on the health care system. To that effect, CPR has added 12 new metrics to the Scorecard that, together with the original ones, gauge the economic signals that payers are sending to health care providers, how the health care system may be transforming and whether there is an impact on outcomes.
