In October 2012, Medicare began rewarding hospitals that provide high-quality patient care through the Hospital Value-Based Purchasing Program—hospitals would no longer receive payment based solely on the quantity of services provided.

Over the years, numerous studies have analyzed the use of financial incentives in improving physician and organizational performance. The results? Many studies show that these incentives are simply not working.

As we look to the future of healthcare, what, if anything, can be done to motivate improved performance among healthcare providers? Should we drop the idea of using financial or non-financial incentives in favor of other approaches? Lawrence P. Casalino, Livingston Farrand Professor and Chief of the Division of Health Policy and Economics at Weill Cornell Medical College, will propose a framework to think about the conditions under which incentives can work.
