What a lovely phrase ... pay-for-performance. For those who toil harder, work smarter, go the extra mile, satisfy customers, follow the rules, comply with regulations--the surest incentive of all--more money on payday. The underlying principle of pay-for-performance compensation, now the rage in health care, is the creation of financial incentives that reward quality-improving, cost-saving, and more efficient behavior by medical professionals.
