The American Nurses Association's (ANA) Congress on Nursing Practice and Economics (CNPE) P4P/VBP Workgroup would like to hear from you! Your feedback can help us develop principles/guidelines for nurses on P4P/VBP.

Pay-for-Performance is a concept used throughout health care which links payments and other incentives to the performance of quality and efficiency measures. P4P initiatives have been adopted by various stakeholders: large employers, business coalitions, health plans and others. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has various P4P demonstration projects, and has incorporated P4P principles in its Value-Based Purchasing initiative, which links reimbursement to quality of care. Nursing has a role in patient outcomes and in the collection and reporting of quality data.

The CNPE P4P/VBP Workgroup has added an entry on ANANurseSpace.org, ANA's Online Social Network. To access the information and to provide your feedback use link below. You will be directed to login. Once on ANANurseSpace, select COMMUNITY from the top menu, then scroll down to "Pay-for-Performance (P4P)/Value-Based Purchasing (VBP) – What do you think?."
