Regarding CMS awards $7 million in P4P project:
Lets see if I get this straight. One hundred twelve hospitals agree to participate in the pay-for-performance program. For all the reporting hassles and changes in practice, the CMS rewards them with an average payment of $62,500. Thats not much pay for performance.
