Bookmark and Share

The white paper by Meredith Rosenthal, Ph.D., of the Harvard School of Public Health, reviews five presentations that were delivered at a conference on payment reform in the fall of 2010. Rosenthal identifies six common elements among the various global payment reform efforts:

  • Transparency (to providers and patients)
  • Flexibility
  • Tailored to local circumstances with respectful engagement of physicians
  • Undertaken through pilots, with evaluation and dissemination of best practices
  • Accompanied by timely data sharing by payers to providers and throughout referral networks
  • Supported by resources adequate for providers and payers to make the transition to new models
