New Panel Formed To Study Physician Payment Reform
The Society of General Internal Medicine has formed a panel to investigate physician payment and the effect of financial incentives on patient care. Next year, the panel will make recommendations on how to reform physician payments and assess payment models, such as accountable care organizations, medical homes and value-based purchasing. The panel is funded in part by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, the California Healthcare Foundation and the Sergei Zlinkoff Fund for Medical Education and Research. CHCF publishes California Healthline.
