Driven by financial pressures from employers, payors and consumers alike, the shift from volume to value is significantly changing how health care is both paid for and delivered.

With the added complexities of emerging value-based reimbursement models, developing and administering new performance-based compensation programs that align with the evolving environment can be cumbersome.

As organizations integrate more value-based care measures into their physician compensation programs, a transparent view into how providers are performing and being paid is critical and requires access to timely, accurate and actionable data. Additionally, it is essential that physician leaders can quickly and clearly evaluate performance data so they can provide guidance on how to improve. Developed in cooperation with Mayo Clinic Health System, SullivanCotter’s Provider Performance Management TechnologyTM (PPMTTM) is an industry-first, cloud-based solution that enables provider engagement through transparent performance-based compensation administration, reporting and analytical capabilities.

Designed to address a spectrum of physician, leadership and other key stakeholder needs, PPMTTM combines years of health care compensation insight and expertise with an intuitive, automated technology platform to help drive provider performance and support the transition from volume- to value-based care.
