Written By: Jason Shafrin - Aug• 16•07

Many times on this blog, I have commented about pay-for-performance (P4P) programs. A healthcare economist, physician, or health services researcher may wonder where they can get data regarding P4P. In truth, getting P4P data is difficult; this is reinforced by the fact that for most physicians, P4P incentives make up a small portion of their salary and thus it may be difficult to detect major behavioral changes empirically.

Nevertheless, the Alliance for Health Reform has written a 2006 issue brief on P4P and cites some of the major programs.
