Don BerwickOn Call: Do We Need to Be Paid for Quality?
Wednesday, June 24th, 4:30-5:30 PM Eastern Time

When you enter the workforce, your pay could be based on any number of factors – including how well your patients do after they enter your hospital or clinic. “Pay for performance” is an ongoing experiment aimed at motivating health care workers to do what’s right for patients. But does it do what it is supposed to do? Would you feel more motivated if your pay were linked to patient outcomes? What’s the best incentive for you to do a great job?

Join Don Berwick, IHI’s founder and CEO, as he explores the recent history and impact of pay for performance. You’ll learn:

  • How pay for performance fits into the recent history of worker incentives in health care
  • What research suggests about the effectiveness of pay for performance
  • How health systems are using (and not using) pay for performance
  • What you can do to learn more about pay structures where you work and study
