Criterion 27: #176665


An accredited medical specialty society described how it collaborated in the development of a new payment model. Working with a managed care organization, a group of society members examined incentive models to promote the adoption of best practices and achieve better care outcomes for patients. Once the components of a pilot program were agreed upon, the society initiated educational activities for their members about the incentive program and payment model, recruited members to participate, and facilitated the implementation of the program in collaboration with the managed care organization.
