Health Rewards Stat of the Day – Jan 13

According to The Advisory Board, in their preliminary analysis of the proposed HAC penalties, they stated that a 1% HAC penalty would generally foreshadow a net negative P4P loss in FY 2015. After reviewing the final results, this insight still holds true: 98% of hospitals receiving a HAC penalty are expected to see an overall net negative pay-for-performance impact after all three programs are considered in aggregate. Only 15 hospitals performed exceptionally strongly on VBP and were able to fully offset the HAC penalty with a VBP bonus.

Of the hospitals that received both HAC and readmissions penalties (an estimated 579 facilities), only two of them (Sharp Coronado Hospital and Healthcare Center in San Diego, Calif. and Chickasaw Nation Medical Center in Ada, Okla.) are projected to break even on pay-for-performance overall.
