This program contract supports honoraria to participants in the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation's Physician Health Care Cost Network. As the Foundation and contractor narrowed the list of potential network participants, GYMR recognized the importance of offering an honorarium for participation in the network to assist in recruiting a high level of engaged physicians who are still rooted in practice. These participants' perspectives will be critical to the success of the project. The goals of the physician network are to: (1) elevate the voice and role of physicians in the national discussion of health care spending; (2) provide recommendations for reducing spending and increasing value in health care; and (3) provide a means to vet spending-related recommendations made by other groups and partner organizations. The deliverables for the network include: (1) a maintained online site to enable interaction among the participants; (2) two meetings; (3) an overview report for each meeting; and (4) three written pieces for public distribution.
