QUALITY/POLICY: P4P get official in Businessweek, no less

So in a remarkable bit of futurism, only 8 years after Greg Schmid invented the concept at IFTF (well, we end up calling it performance-based reimbursement, but it’s the same thing as P4P), Businessweek has noticed and Pay for Performance has gone mainstream.

I’m still looking for someone to find an earlier citation of an equivalent term or concept–I still can’t believe that we allowed a non-healthcare economist to invent the term!  And with reference to the Gianfranco post from yesterday…. Greg came into work every day for 5 years and always said to me "How come they named the football team you support after the President’s daughter?"
