An Environmental Scan of Pay for Performance in the Hospital Setting: Final Report. IV. Summary of Discussions with Hospitals, Hospital Associations, and Data Vendors. Summary of Discussions with Hospitals, Hospital Associations, and Data Vendors

RAND held discussions with a broad cross-section of hospitals, hospital associations, and hospital data vendors to learn about the experiences hospitals and their support vendors have had with the Medicare RHQDAPU P4R program, various private-sector P4P programs, and/or the CMS PHQID. Within the hospitals, we spoke to the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) or President; within the hospital associations, we spoke to the CEO and/or the lead policy and research staff dedicated to performance measurement and reporting. This activity was part of the larger environmental scan that RAND conducted to describe the current P4P and P4R landscape, in terms of how programs are designed and what lessons are being learned, in order to help inform the development of a VBP program for Medicare hospital services.
