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… 

Combined impact of Medicare’s hospital pay for performance programs on quality and safety outcomes is mixed

Given the growing evidence of limited impact, the administrative cost of monitoring and enforcing penalties, and potential increase in mortality, CMS should consider redesigning their P4P programs before continuing to expand them.

Hospitalists staffing level and EMR capability are both positively correlated with hospitals’ TPS, and they act independently to bolster hospital performance, suggesting that hospitalists and E MR act through separate mechanisms to help hospitals achieve better performance.

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).

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
