Session ID: 


Inefficiencies are abundant within U.S. healthcare delivery systems. Healthcare policy reform has endeavored to promote high-quality care while reducing costs, however various implementations of pay-for-performance, quality metrics, and meaningful use incentives have yielded mediocre results. This poster will highlight innovative initiatives across the U.S. that financially and socially reward health care providers who improve the quality of patient-centered care. Profiling incentive programs that leverage informatics within the Yale New Haven Health System, in addition to other pioneer care systems across the country, this poster will provide up-to-date evidence of program effectiveness and facilitate the sharing of best practices for incentive programs that promote quality improvement and value-based care delivery.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Develop basic knowledge of cutting-edge financial and social incentives to guide behavior change among health care providers.
  • Discover innovative mechanisms of quality improvement within inpatient and outpatient care.
  • Facilitate duplication and sharing of effective/best practices to promote care quality improvement.
  • Establish an agenda for pioneering mechanisms to incentivize behavior change among health care providers and patients.
