Pharmacy OneSource, software-as-a-service provider of Sentri7, the real-time patient surveillance system, is pleased to announce a complimentary webinar presented by Steve Riddle, BS Pharm, BCPS, FASHP, on pay-for-performance systems in "The Building Wave of Pay-for-Performance: Is Your Practice Ready for the Rising Tide?"
The current United States' healthcare environment is in turmoil with costs rising and many concerns about the quality and safety of the care provided. The concept of value-based purchasing seeks to address these problems by asserting that buyers should hold providers of health care accountable for both cost and quality of care. Pay-for-performance (P4P), a type of value-based purchasing, provides an incentive-based reimbursement system that rewards providers based on performance evaluated using standardized measures. P4P is already in use in managed care and in some hospitals.
This webinar will explore the basic premise of P4P, review current P4P models and discuss how pharmacists can best prepare for and participate in this new model.
