Payment Reform: Analysis of Models and Performance Measurement Implications – RAND – 2011

Eric C. Schneider, Peter S. Hussey, Christopher Schnyer  Sponsored by the National Quality Forum

“In the United States, policymakers are increasingly turning to performance measurement as a cornerstone of health care payment reform. With the support of the National Quality Forum (NQF), the RAND Corporation conducted this evaluation, cataloging nearly 100 implemented and proposed payment reform programs, classifying each of these programs into one of 11 payment reform models (PRMs), and identifying the performance measurement needs associated with each model. A synthesis of the results suggests near-term priorities for performance measure development and identifies pertinent challenges related to the use of performance measures as a basis for payment reform. Our intent is that this report will be useful to a broad range of stakeholders with an interest in the appropriate use of standardized performance measures to improve the quality and efficiency of health care delivery for all of the people of the United States.”
