CMS's Hospital Quality Initiative includes voluntary public reporting of quality measures on Hospital Compare; development of a standardized survey of inpatient experiences; the pay-for-performance (P4P) Premier Hospital Quality Incentive Demonstration; and the Reporting Hospital Quality Data for Annual Payment Update (APU) data reporting incentive program. In summer 2005, MPR surveyed a national sample of hospital executives to assess current participation in, and views on future, P4P initiatives. We will present findings on rates of hospital participation in P4P initiatives in our sample.
