Supplemental Digital Content is available in the text. Background: Under the Affordable Care Act, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services has greatly expanded inpatient fee-for-value programs including the Hospital Value-based Purchasing (HVBP) program. Existing evidence from the HVBP program is mixed. There is a need for a systematic review of the HVBP program to inform discussions on how to improve the program’s effectiveness. Objective: To review and summarize studies that evaluated… Expand

Minimally important difference in cost savings: Is it possible to identify an MID for cost savings?
This exploratory study used three approaches to derive minimally important differences (MID) for two types of resource measures common in costing studies for: (1) hospital admissions (high cost) and clinic visits (low cost). Expand
Measuring patient satisfaction in acute care hospitals: nationwide monitoring in Switzerland.
Compared to the 7- or 11-point scales, the 5-point verbal scale exhibited reduced ceiling effects, which was more appropriate to compare hospitals, and displayed good psychometric properties. Expand

Pay for Performance in the Hospital Setting: What Is the State of the Evidence?
A systematic review of the literature examines the current state of knowledge about the effect of P4P on clinical process measures, patient outcomes and experience, safety, and resource utilization and concludes that there is a need for more systematic evaluation. Expand
Joint Replacement Volume Positively Correlates With Improved Hospital Performance on Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services Quality Metrics.
There is a positive association between joint replacement volumes and overall hospital quality, as well as joint replacement Volume and VBP performance, specifically, consistent with previously reported associations between patient outcomes and procedure volumes. Expand
Hospital pay-for-performance programs in Maryland produced strong results, including reduced hospital-acquired conditions.
The State of Maryland crafted two pay-for-performance programs applicable to all hospitals and payers-a Quality-Based Reimbursement Program similar to Medicare's value-based purchasing program and a separate program that compared hospitals' risk-adjusted relative performance on a broad array of hospital-acquired conditions.

The Financial Effect of Value-Based Purchasing and the Hospital Readmissions Reduction Program on Safety-Net Hospitals in 2014
Whether these programs both individually and combined had a disproportionate financial effect on safety-net hospitals in FY 2014 is examined, both in terms of the probability of incurring a penalty and the magnitude of the penalty. Expand
Resource Dependency and Hospital Performance in Hospital Value-Based Purchasing
It would seem that hospitals do not have either the same ability or motivation to make changes in each of the value-based purchasing domains, but the findings indicate that environmental forces do play a role in hospitals’ performance in the HVBP program. Expand
Value-Based Purchasing, Efficiency, and Hospital Performance
Examination of the association of hospital efficiency hospital characteristics with the HVBP performance scores indicates that less efficient hospitals are more likely to have lower patient satisfaction scores and total performance scores compared with more efficient hospitals. Expand
Association between the Value-Based Purchasing pay for performance program and patient mortality in US hospitals: observational study
Evidence that HVBP has led to lower mortality rates is lacking and Nations considering similar pay for performance programs may want to consider alternative models to achieve improved patient outcomes. Expand
