Target Audience: Department Chairs and Administrative / Finance Directors
Educational Level: Advanced
Educational Method: Lecture, Forum; Panel Discussion

Description: With government payers moving toward value purchasing, provider payment (reimbursement) models will be based on achieving predetermined quality metrics, meaningful use measures, and HCAHPS / CGAHPS scores. Accordingly, many departments are considering putting at “risk” a percentage of the providers salary by aligning such to achieving the mandated benchmark targets. Most current compensation models have been primarily based upon clinical productivity. Aligning provider compensation to quality, clinical and academic mission targets is challenging. Variables affecting provider reimbursement, tools to measure productivity and financial models to address this gap and implementation strategies will be discussed. Chairs are interested in also addressing incentives for Providers to be productive not only in the clinical mission, but in the research, teaching and service/citizenship missions of AMCs. All of this needs to be considered in Provider compensation going forward.
