INS-046: Aligning Incentives

Aligning Incentives: The Wisconsin Medical Society endorses the concept that payers align incentives to recognize higher performance as defined by factors such as

  • Scientifically based clinical outcome measures
  • community-based ‘best practices’
  • patient satisfaction

The Society endorses any and all reasonable means to facilitate investments in information technology by payers, purchasers and government, as well as physicians and non-physician clinicians, in order to provide continually updated guidelines to clinicians at the point of patient care, and in order to develop means of collecting data and measuring and reporting outcomes of care.
