Exploring the Black Box: Design and Implementation Issues of Pay-for-Performance for Rural Physicians

The study utilized qualitative research methods, including literature reviews and expert interviews, to explore key research questions related to the design and implementation of pay-for-performance (P4P) systems by the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and private health care delivery systems.  Design and implementation issues addressed include quality measures and measurement, linking quality measurement to payments, dissemination of information, and the implications of P4P for rural physicians.‚Äč
