Evaluating Healthcare Improvements: Has Pay for Performance been successful in the NHS? (Professor Martin Roland)19 May 2010, posted by Saba Hinrichs (Seminars)
Most developed countries are struggling to find the best way to improve the quality of medical care. Financial incentives to doctors are increasingly popular with payers and the NHS has embarked on the largest experiment in ‘pay for performance’ in the world with 25% of GPs’ income now tied to the quality of care that they provide. This seminar will present an evaluation of pay for performance in UK primary care, and early results from its extension into the hospital sector.
