Pediatricians are accountable for the ACOs

The Pedias concerned to the accountable care organizations or ACOs who got small incentives to boost the quality of the member’s life, but it may not be as important s the doctors who are working in the hospital according to a new research. The outcome bids pay for performance will work, but not to the extent wished for by those who are paying and dramatically looking for tie payment to performance. It also showed that more work is important to know what is best for the incentives.  The outcome that was published online by the JAMA Pediatrics have checked on the quality performance through 3 various doctor groups, that includes a group of community doctors who were asked to get $40 in every patient to be able to meet the target for every visit, screening and vaccines at the same time.

The researchers also checked with the community doctors who got no incentive and the 3rd group of doctors working in the hospital who also had no incentives in the first place. When you compare with the community doctors who got no incentive, the doctors who were given the incentive did better on 5 quality measures. There are some investigators have assumed that the size of the incentives, the infiltration of some particular insured populace in practice, transformation and skill practice are all essential factors that will affect the probability that the incentives may be effective according to the author.

Policymakers and the industry face

According to the diagnosis, the underscore and the challenges that are the policymakers and the industry face some findings on how to tie the payment to the performance. The research on how best to come up with the right type of incentive is quite limited and that will be a result of a mixture and some other factors like the introduction of the electronic medical records that may also be a vital role.  The writers of the study have introduced some of the incentives in the study.  They are up to new ideas and to be able to improve the quality of the research. There are good intentions, according to Gleeson and the results will be highlighted for the need of those who were provided with the review of the successful program. He added that they need better results.

The incentives are just a tool, but it is not the only method to boost the performance that will lead to improvement. The research has checked on the payments used in 2012 & in 2013. ACO has initiated to check the new incentive made with bigger and more targeted incentive payments according to Gleeson. The fresh incentive sought to hit the care for those who are needy. ACO has leveled up with the non-financial incentives to boost the performance that includes the quality of support, he added
