EHRs Aren’t Ready For Pay For Performance

“So many healthcare policy makers are looking to the pay-for-performance (P4P) healthcare model in hopes that it will improve clinical outcomes and reduce medical expenditures. And while there’s some evidence to suggest P4P will help accomplish those twin goals, available health IT tools–and the way clinicians insist on using them–can thwart efforts to achieve those goals.
In order to get the healthcare community to switch from a fee-for-service model to one in which clinicians are paid for the quality of the patient care they deliver, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, as well as some private insurers, have established a long list of quality metrics to track clinicians’ progress toward better care.”
