PROMETHEUS Payment Reform Quarterly Newsletter, Issue 5

The fifth issue of the PROMETHEUS Payment® project’s quarterly newsletter provides brief updates on the program’s latest work to ignite a transformation in health care payment and the way providers and insurers conduct business. Currently being tested in real communities across America, the project seeks to reward high-quality, consumer-driven care and allows providers who do the right things for patients to also do well financially.

This issue highlights news and views from PROMETHEUS, including an update on the newest pilot site in Grand Rapids, Michigan; the development of new pregnancy and delivery evidence-informed case rates (ECRs); and a comprehensive case study on budgets for knee replacement surgery under PROMETHEUS Payment compared to traditional fee-for-service arrangements.
