In its 15-year existence, Highmark’s Quality Blue physician pay for performance program has evolved from one strictly based on clinical measures to a payment model shaped by practices’ needs, explains Julie Hobson, Highmark’s manager of provider engagement, performance and partnership. Hobson describes how feedback from physicians resulted in its Best Practice quality improvement project, what CMS’s recently announced stage 2 proposal for meaningful EHR use means for Quality Blue, and some lessons Highmark has learned about engaging physicians in pay for performance. Julie Hobson presented during Physician Pay-for-Performance: Refining the Bonus Structure To Meet Market Realities, a 45-minute webinar on March 22, 2012, during which Hobson will describe how Highmark’s Quality Blue physician pay for performance program has evolved to meet today’s healthcare market realities. Hobson will share new developments slated for 2012 to reflect meaningful use requirements; the bonus scoring algorithm currently in place that rewards physicians across the measure set and how this algorithm will change in 2012 to reflect market developments; and much more.
