ABSTRACT
The article explores the risks and advantages of the Medicare pay-for-performance project by the U.S. Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). Hospitals involved in the project say the bonus they get paid for improving the quality of patient care barely covers the investment in time, technology and people needed to collect data and participate in the program. Participating hospitals have improved by 11.8 percent their adherence to evidence-based protocols in five clinical areas.
