Patient Experience-Tied Physician Compensation and Quality of Care in the United States, 2012-2016

Project: Research project

Project Details


Patient experience measures have increasingly been used in determining physician compensation. Ideally, linking physician compensation to patient experience incents care that is timely, understandable, coordinated, and patient-centered. However, physicians express concern that patient experience-based compensation is a cause of stress and burnout; draws attention away from high-value preventive or chronic care; and incents low value care, like inappropriate antibiotic and opioid prescribing. The relationship between patient experience-based compensation and clinical quality is poorly understood
