First of Its Kind

This survey is the first of its kind, focusing exclusively on non-productivity measures and serving as a comprehensive source of data on emerging performance measures and incentive design practices. We take a complicated array of clinical quality, patient experience, outcomes, process, citizenship and service line specific measures and categorize them based on market utilization and application in a clinical setting.

Survey Highlights

  • Detailed examination of performance incentive structure and quality incentive plan design, reported by specialty
  • Comprehensive reporting of quality incentive metrics including the following measures: clinical process, patient experience, outcomes, citizenship, service-line, access, efficiency, and financial
  • Focus on MACRA measures and high prevalence measures from HEDIS and Five-Star Quality Rating System
  • Analysis of governance structures and internal processes in place to examine each measure
  • Individual quality measures collected and reported by specialty and frequency of use
  • Other data provided by specialty: incentive award amounts including bonus compensation, pay-at-risk, and quality incentives as a percentage of total cash compensation
