Moving Away From Fee-For-Service Medicine

27 Aug

Many of my posts have made reference to the need for us to move away from a fee-for-service payment structure in medicine. I’ve offered that a workable alternative might be a combination of risk-adjusted capitation and pay-for-performance incentives.

Rather than reinvent the wheel, I refer you to an excellent outline of such a plan from the Center for Healthcare Quality & Payment Reform. If you have questions about it, leave comments, and I will do my best to respond.
