RevCycle Intelligence writes: The impact of hospital pay-for-performance models, such as Medicare’s Hospital Value-Based Purchasing Program (HVBP), have been “limited and disappointing” over the past decade, researchers stated in a new BMJ study. The analysis of national Medicare claims data from 2003 to 2013 for over 1,100 hospitals showed that clinical process scores and 30-day mortality rates were not better at hospitals that had been participating in Medicare pay-for-performance programs for at least a decade than at hospitals that had just adopted the models.
