Health Reward Stat of the Day – September 18

A key ObamaCare program, called Hospital Value Based Purchasing, rewards hospitals with 1 percent of their annual earnings for their performance under 20 metrics, such as responding quickly to heart attacks and giving patients discharge instructions when they leave the hospitals.

In the United Kingdom, a full 20 percent of doctors’ pay is tethered to how well they do their job.

This US program will grow, but only slightly: in 2017, hospitals will have 2 percent of their Medicare revenue at risk with these quality metrics.
